This stacking runner chair, model no. 410, is based on the Arnold model 3036, which was created during the period of the close cooperation between Marcel Breuer and L.&C. Arnold. Significantly, the mensa chair 410 is also a further development of the popular model 409, which was modified by designer Rainer Zahrend of Bauhaus in co-operation with Uve Jacubke of Arnold Stendal in 1984/85 for Bauhaus in Dessau.
Over 1000 runner chairs remain in use there today, including in the Gropius room, the Bauhaus workshop, the Preller-Haus and in the offices. They are also much used in the Bauhaus Aula for special events and panel discussions.
