Aren’t these chairs fabulous?? We currently have a large quantity of these Dakota Jackson Vik-Ter dining chairs in four colors red, yellow, orange, and blue. You get to choose how many and what colors! Their original home was the Topeka Public Library which in 1998 was redesigned by the internationally renowned architect Michael Graves. The 100,000 square foot addition project’s furniture was completely specified by him as well. Not so coincidentally, Michael Graves collaborated with celebrity designer Dakota Jackson to design some of the most avant-garde and high style furniture in the 1980’s, including such works as the Vik-Ter dining chair. This chair design includes a welded steel frame with a cross stretcher and molded plywood seat and back. The Vik-Ter chair received a silver award for environmental design in the 1992 Industrial Design Excellence Awards and was shown in exhibitions at The Weatherspoon Art Gallery, Museum of Arts and Designs, and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. They are truly a work of art produced by an iconic duo of designers. So, whether you need one, four, twelve or ALL OF THEM …you need to make them yours!!!

the details

Awesome Dakota Jackson Vik–Ter 1 dining chairs comprised of iron frame, molded plywood seat and back, and maple veneer.  We originally had a very large number but have already sold many and they were quite frankly in the best condition. We currently have 64 available in four colors 18 red, 15 yellow, 17 orange, and 14 blue. Just in case we have miscounted you might check with us to make sure the numbers you desire are still available. These chairs are all solid and sturdy but in various condition on their finishes as they were used commercially. The remainder all need to be refinished in our opinion. These photos do not show the proper condition of the chairs that are left. It shows a more refinished look. Please contact us for condition photos and see NOTE below. Circa Late 20th Century.

NOTE: We are selling these per chair. We can send condition example photos prior to purchase so that you can decide if you want us to refinish them for you or you want them as is. All have flaws and will need to be refinished. We can do this for $225.00 additional cost per chair (same color only) if you so desire. Please contact us for estimates on group purchases as we will negotiate the price of the chairs for large quantity purchases.
