at the Container Corporation of America
This set of chairs comes from the Container Corporation of America's Eastern Regional Headquarters building in Oaks, Pennsylvania. They were part of the original decor of the building, which opened in 1960 and was designed by Herbert Bayer with Pace Associates. The building has changed hands several times since CCA left the offices in the mid-1980s and it is currently slated to be demolished, as it has fallen into disrepair. Wegner's iconic chairs were chosen to outfit the office's interiors and their classic mid-century design is in line with the modernist vision CCA and Bayer were instrumental in building.
