Adolf Loos Corner Chairs, F.O. Schmidt, Velvet Wood, Jugendstil, 1898-1900, Pair

About

A pair of extremely rare armchairs designed by Adolf Loos (1870-1933) and manufactured by Friedrich Otto Schmidt, Vienna, Austria, circa 1900. The condition is very good. The chairs have been restored in the past. There is minor wear on wood and noticeable wear on the velvet. We offer a reupholstery in any color (e.g. velvet or leather) for free. About Loos: Adolf Franz Karl Viktor Maria Loos (10 December 1870– 23 August 1933) was an Austrian and Czech architect and influential European theorist of modern architecture. His essay Ornament and Crime advocated smooth and clear surfaces in contrast to the lavish decorations of the fin de siècle and also to the more modern aesthetic principles of the Vienna Secession. Loos became a pioneer of modern architecture and contributed a body of theory and criticism of Modernism in architecture and design. Adolf Loos was one of the most important Viennese architects and designers besides Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser, Josef Hoffmann, Joseph Maria Olbrich, and Otto Wagner in Vienna in the early 20th century. Literature: Das Interieur, III, 1901 - Ottilinger Adolf Loos, Wohnkonzepte und Mo¨belentwu¨rfe; Salzburg 1994, p 99.
