Set of Six Chic Ebonized Modernist Chroom Bauhaus Chairs

$3,416.85per set

About

Set of six chroom Bauhaus chairs with plywood seat and backrest, 1930s The set has two armchairs and four normal chairs. German Art Deco black enameled wood armchair with chrome trim having a shaped wood back and cane seat (design attributed: Marcel Breuer; mfg by Thonet.) His friends and family affectionately called him Lajkó, but the rest of us know him as Marcel Breuer, the Hungarian-American designer whose career touched nearly every aspect of three-dimensional design, from tiny utensils to the biggest buildings. Breuer moved quickly at the Bauhaus from student to teacher and then ultimately the head of his own firm. Best known for his iconic chair designs, Breuer often worked in tandem with other designers, developing a thriving global practice that eventually cemented his reputation as one of the most important architects of the modern age. Michael Thonet was a German-Austrian cabinet maker, known for the invention of bentwood furniture. The name Thonet quickly became synonymous with a high standard of exquisite craftsmanship and Thonet's bentwood products soon joined the ranks of the most famous and most imitated furniture products of Modern Times. The chairs remains in an excellent vintage original condition, some minor scratches and paint loss a very nice patina.
