Late 1960s Steelcase Curved-Back Executive Swivel Chairs #1288 are needed for the restoration of the historic Apollo Mission Control Center at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. These swivel chairs were used at each console in the Mission Operations Control Room and adjacent support areas that are part of the National Historic Landmark currently undergoing a major restoration.
A limited amount of original console chairs remain on-site. This is a call for additional late 1960s Steelcase swivel chairs featuring steel square tube framing with a polished chrome finish; four steel legs with rubber wheels; and upholstered back, seat, and armrests. Any upholstered finish is acceptable; acquired chairs will be reupholstered with appropriate fabric matching the original grey upholstery. Single chairs or collections accepted.
