I came across the Classroom Chair at a Phillips de Pury auction earlier.
Now NYC based J. Lohman Gallery has one for sale.
According to Lohman:

Germany, c. 1970
C. 30 Â¾ in. (78 cm) high, 26 in. (66 cm) wide
Originally called the â€œVertreterstuhlâ€, the chairs were part of an installation of a â€œclassroomâ€ at Galerie MÃ¼ller in Cologne in 1971. Since then the chair is also called â€œclassroom chairâ€.
