Josef Maria Olbrich Music Room Armchair 2 Darmstadt Germany c.1900

About

Gorgeous Art Nouveau armchair of finest manufacturing quality. Designer: Attributed to circle of Josef Maria Olbrich (1867 - 1908). Olbrich, the world-famous Austrian architect and co-founder of the Viennese Secession, had studied as from the year 1890 until 1893 at Viennese Academy of Fine Arts where he had been pupil of Karl v. Hasenauer. In period 1893-1898 Olbrich worked in the atelier / studio of the famous Viennese architect Otto Wagner who had designed for example the Viennese 'Postsparkasse' as well as the Viennese tram-train (the so-said 'Stadtbahn'). Beyond that, Olbrich planned and constructed the exhibition building of Viennese Secession, the famous Secession Hall, in 1897/98. Finally in the year 1899, the architect and designer was appointed as co-founder of Darmstadt Artists' Colony by Duke Ernst Ludwig von Hessen: Olbrich designed many houses (including his own) and several exhibition buildings there. Important note: This music room armchair is part of a complete room filled with luxurious furnishings which can't hardly be obtained on art market in such a completed state as we're offering here on 1stdibs! Two armchairs of same type are available (look, please, at the second related offer). Detailed informations: This armchair, perfectly matching the Olbrich furniture pieces we're presenting here, is upholstered with bright blue fabric (like the chairs) / the backrest is stunningly worked, too: inlay works and strips accentuated by black color are visible. Additionally, there are wooden struttings at area below existing to which the armchair's feet are attached. Material: Sycamore veneer wood/perla Horn, plane tree and black stained pearwood/additionally, several inlay woods existing. The armchair is stylistically strongly connected to the Olbrich Music Room Cabinet and other furnishings presented here, too; a copy of this Music Room Cabinet is preserved in the Museum of the Artist's Colony Darmstadt. Bibliography: Katalog der Kuenstlerkolonie Darmstadt (= Catalogue of Artist's Colony Darmstadt / Germany), published by Renate Ulmer (Darmstadt 1990), pages 194/195 Original vintage furniture deriving from manufacturing period!  Measures: Total height: 74.0 cm / 29.13 inches.
