Johannes Spalt Tufted Sofa Daybed 'Constanze' Wittmann, Gray Green Velvet, 1960s

About

A freestanding tufted sofa named 'Constanze' (engl. Constance) designed by Prof. Johannes Spalt for Wittmann, Austria, manufacured in midcentury. By one hand movement the 'Constanze' changes from a sofa to a daybed. Johannes Spalt designed this convertible daybed in 1961 but the offered piece probably was manufactured later in 1960s or early 1970s. The original fabric is in very good condition. It is made of a chromed or nickeled frame and it is upholstered with a light gray-green cord velvet. The 'Constanze' is a beautiful design obect in a very high quality technique which can be positioned freely in a room because the backside is also upholstered. About Prof. Johannes Spalt: Johannes Spalt attended the 'Gewerbeschule' Salzburg and studied architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with Clemens Holzmeister from 1949. He founded 'Arbeitsgruppe 4' (engl. 'working group 4') together with Wilhelm Holzbauer, Friedrich Kurrent, and with Otto Leitner which left in 1953. The groupd was named afterwards the '3/4-ler'. In 1969 he ran his own studio in Vienna, in partial cooperation with Friedrich Kurrent. From 1973 to 1990 Johannes Spalt was Professor of Interior Design and Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and from 1975 to 1979 also its Rector. In addition to designs and realized buildings, Spalt created numerous furniture designs, for example for Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten. Johannes Spalt organized with Max Kurrent the first Adolf Loos exhibition: 1962 in Paris and 1964 in Vienna in the new museum of the 20th century. In 1965 the first Josef Frank exhibition took place in Vienna.
