Ernest Race's BA range was designed to utilise aluminium recycled from decommissioned WW2 aircraft. Produced outside the restraints of the Utility Furniture scheme introduced during WW2, it signalled the birth of a new light and airy contemporary style. All of the BA range is cleverly engineered. It uses few components and the minimum of materials to generate strength and comfort. The design helped establish the tapered leg detail as a major visual element of the post-war style.
