366 Metal Armachair receives the Must Have 2018 Award! We are very proud and happy that the unknown design of J. Chierowski, from 1962, produced for the very first time by 366 Concept, has been recognized and awarded with the most prestigious design award in Poland – the Must Have award by Łódź Design Festival.

366 Metal Armchair is a project with an extraordinary history. Designed in 1962 by Józef Chierowski, has never been put into the production due to the shortage of steel (in the Cold War period furniture had no priority). 366 Concept recreated original drawings and did what was impossible to do half a century ago – started the production of the metal version of the Model 366.

The 366 Metal Armchair was reissued in 2017, in 2018 received the Must Have prize at Łódź Design Festival.

Winning two awards by one product in two versions is a unique achievement. In 2015, the Must Have award went to a classic wooden 366 Armchair, in 2018 – 366 Metal version. What distinguishes the Metal model is the fact that it has never been produced before. We revived the project that for several decades existed only on the drawings of prof. Chierowskiego.

Another Must Have is proof that the design of 366 Series is timeless. A career that began in 1962 is really just beginning!
