KEM Weber’s rare and iconic "Airline" Armchair was designed in 1934 and produced in 1938 for Walt Disney Studios in a limited run of 300. The Airline chair was the realization of Weber’s career-long goal: to achieve a wholly American form of modern design. In a practical innovation far ahead of its time, the Airline chair was designed to be sold flat-packed in segments for easy home assembly. Although the chair seemed destined for great commercial success, factory production of it never became a reality. In the end, only 300 chairs were produced for the animation offices in Burbank, California.
