This chair is considered one of the first one-piece mass-produced plastic chair. Designed by Helmut Bätzner's architectural office during the 1960s in conjunction with the building project for the State Theatre in Karlsruhe, Germany. Plastic furniture was still a new venture and Bätzner, seeking advice, presented his idea to furniture manufacturer Bofinger. He became a powerful supporter of the project, eventually lending his name to the chair. The chair could be produced in only five minutes with little finishing needed. It was intended as additional seating indoors as well as for outdoor use and had to be light, moveable, stackable, compact, and weatherproof. The chair's popularity is confirmed by the production of over 120,000 examples.
