To mark the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the 203 chair the Company issued a leaflet entitled "The Generating Theme" which included the following: "?On a wet November night 1953 ? at an unbelievably late hour ? the lights were burning in the prototype shop ? a familiar voice boomed out, ?Look, Tom, that will see us through two or three months!?. The Old Man was pointing at a chair he had been developing for years ? the 203 Easy Chair ? it has no other name but its number. The ?Tom? he boomed at was Tom Redrup, still very much with us today ? who shared with the Old Man in evolving the chair in its infancy ? and so is the chair with us today after 25 years."
