"Sach" Wood Sculpture Side Chair by Vit Cimbura for Atika, No. 14/1, Czech, 1988

About

Super rare piece of furniture art by Czechian Architect Vit Cimbura made in 1988. Our example called "Sach" is number 14/1, which suggests there are 14 examples. We think however it is the only one made, since the Art movement "Atika" Vit was part of only made unique and one of a kind objects. This piece of impressive furniture maybe shouldn't be called a dining or side chair. This is more than a chair and the word chair would be to simplistic to describe an object like this. In our opinion this should be called a sculpture or a piece of art with the looks of a chair. This isn't something you will simply place at your dining table, but something you will place at a prominent spot in your space, so people can behold its fascinating shapes and design. Just like a piece of art should be treated. The piece is fully made by hand by one of Chechs most famous architect Vit Cimbura in 1988. It consists of solid Maple wood with a leather seating. The wood is carved and colored or stained in black and green. The yellow color is the original color of the Maple. It gained some traces of use to wood and leather seating over the time, but since its appeared is quite massive it doesn't harm its looks. Chair is original and has the artist his signature. In 1987 a group of Czech architects consisting of Vít Cimbura (1950), Bohuslav Horák (1954), Jirí Javurek (1956), Jirí Pelcl (1950) and Jaroslav Šusta jr. (1956) founded the free Atika association. An art movement focused mainly on furniture and non-conformist conceptions of interiors in the spirit of contemporary Postmodern tendencies. They were responsible for many beautiful objects like chairs, armchairs, sofas, libraries, mirrors, shelves, hangers, lamps, vases and bowls, and are considered among the most important designers of Czech. About 160 unique and original objects were created in the period from 1987 till 1992. Atika her work is poetic and was critically acclaimed by foreign critics in the time. The objects reflected the inspriration of nature and the warm ambience of Praque. Many of their items are either part of a private collection or in a museum. A super rare piece of art for any design collector. Literature: Atika 1987-1992 : emoce a forma by Koudelková Dagmar 2007 Dimensions: 88 x 40 x 46 cm. (34.6 x 15.7 x 18.1 in.)
