Set of Ten Adolf Loos Chairs Cafe Capua Vienna, Austria, Thonet, 1913
A set of ten fantastic and extremely rare Adolf Loos chairs manufactured by Thonet. Adolf Loos adopted this chair model inspired by 18th century Windsor chairs and used it for the Cafe Capua which interior was designed by him in 1913. The Cafe Capua is located in the 1st district of Vienna (Johannesgasse 3). It was the third interior design by Adolf Loos for a coffeehouse after the Cafe Museum and the Kärntner Bar. The chairs are in excellent condition. They have been refurbished and professionally restored. They are made of stained beech wood in a dark and almost black mahogany tone. The finish is French polished, a technique that involves hand applying many thin coats of shellac which was used for high quality pieces in that time. This is costly and time-consuming handcrafted procedure and they have been repolished in this way. There is also a matching pair of armchairs in a separate listing available (see last image). 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.
