Our design philosophy draws inspiration from the Bauhaus tradition, emphasizing a combination of design, simplicity, quality, and functionality. One of HOWE’s most iconic products, the 40/4 chair by David Rowland, reflects the influence of the Bauhaus movement perfectly.
Through it, David Rowland fused American technical expertise with European avant-garde and modern design, creating some of the most unique seating ever produced.
Today, the 40/4 chair is proudly showcased in the Bauhaus Museum’s temporary collection in Dessau, Germany.
As HOWE exclusively holds all rights to the original 40/4 stacking chair by David Rowland, our commitment to preserving the rich history and heritage embedded within such originals is strong.
