El Lissitzky D61 Black and Blue Chair Bauhaus Style for Tecta, circa 1970

About

Chair model D61, designed by El Lissitzky in 1930. Manufactured in Germany by Tecta, circa 1970. In original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Materials: Wood Leather Dimensions: D 51 cm x W 57 cm H 73 cm El Lissitzky designed the portable plywood model D61 for the hygiene exhibition in Dresden. The exhibition was a specialty and went back to the director of the then Hygiene Museum. The aim was to record the contemporary problems of hygiene and to promote a health-oriented lifestyle. Universal artist El Lissitzky (1890-1941) is one of the key protagonists of constructivism. The architect, photographer, designer, graphic artist and painter first studied architecture at Darmstadt Technical University (1909-1914) and in Moscow (1914-1918), and then followed Marc Chagall’s invitation to teach at Witebsk Art School, where he met Kazimir Malevich. Lissitzky liked to call himself a “constructor”.
