D70 Chair for Tecta by Marco Dessí

Marco Dessi of Studiodessi designed the Tecta D70 chair.

“I’m very excited about this furniture – it’s one of my most personal designs in a long time,” says designer Marco Dessí, a native of South Tyrol with a studio in Vienna. The interplay of geometric figures distinguishes his D70. The trapezoid of the backrest, the triangle of the front legs and an unusual oval at the seat. It invites you to try it out: Legs up – you can even fit a book or laptop next to it. An iconographic, clear design that quickly reveals the references to Tecta and the Bauhaus.

Chair no 41 by Fischel

This photo is made by Geert Vanhoutte, a Belgian collector of bentwood furniture. He used to have a nice blog and/or cooperated with an Austrian blog about Bentwood chairs. Both or maybe it was just one blog have ceased to exist. Recently he answered an inquiry from me and I am glad he is still alive and kicking. One day I hope to be able to visit him and make photo’s of his collection…..
