Tubular Lounge Chair by Erich Dieckmann

Erich Dieckmann. Armchair, past 1931. H. 64 x 60 x 90 cm. Made by Cebaso, Ohrdruf (attributed). Nickel-plated tubular steel, stained beech, black fabric.

Dieckmann is among the most important designers of the Bauhaus and his tubular steel furniture takes a special position in the context of European tubular steel design of the pre-war era. “The fundamental construction principle of this design follows the closed ‘Two line’ system. Seat – backframe and pedestal have been built of a closed line each.” Cf. exhib. cat. Erich Dieckmann, Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, 1990, S. 107, pl. 29 and p.177.

Fabric discoloured. Original iron yarn fabric existing. The model had been manufactured by Metz & Co. in the 1930s too. Both executions differentiate only marginally.

For sale at Quittenbaum estimated at € 12000 – 15000, but withheld.

S35 by Breuer for Thonet

S35 by Marcel Breuer

This comfortable club chair was presented in 1930 at the Paris Grand Palais as a contribution by the Deutscher Werkbund. Together with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer organized this premiere of contemporary German furniture production in France. With the S 35 he succeeded in integrating all of the functions of a tubular steel cantilever chair with the construction of a single uninterrupted line. The cantilever effect was thus doubled because the armrests, which flex independently from the seat, balance the swinging of the seat and backrest frame that projects towards the back. A matching footstool is available.
Frames chrome-plated tubular steel. Seat, backrest and footstool stretched with black full-grain butt leather or brown buffalo hide. Armrests in stained beech or oiled walnut.

Like explained in an earlier post, Chantal Andriot is the former CFO of Tolix who, together with some employees, bought the company and revived it.

To assist in the artistic direction, Chantal Andriot has chosen the designers Jean-François Dingjian et Eloi Chafaï alias Normal Studio. Their design questions industrial workmanship, freeing it from the past in order to valorise the workshop’s legendary know-how.
