Seating as Minimalist Sculpture, 6 Elements, Klaus Uredat, 1969 for COR, Germany

About

Beautiful and super rare large set of six "CORBI', sculptural form, modular seating elements by German designer Klaus Uredat. All six chairs have just been reupholstered in a wonderful organic finish mohair fabric, ('Musco' 01/00 by Dutch company DE PLOEG), which complements the pure elemental design extremely well. These six elements bear the original manufacturer's date stamps '1972' and '1973' in the foam. The sculptural 'Corbi' modular lounge chair was designed in 1969 and only remained in limited scale production for a few years up to circa 1974. Today this super elegant design is both very popular and very difficult to find due to the passage of time and the limited total production numbers so a large set of elements such as this, is really a rare opportunity. Each 'Corbi' element is composed of two independent Minimalist sculptural forms, one base element and one cylindrical seat back. With the base elements positioned end to end, day beds may be also created. Of course you can use each element as an individual lounge chair or as a six element modular sofa too. A wonderfully flexible seating system and very beautiful too. A must for fans of pure Minimalist design. The 'Corbi' seating system was exhibited at the 1972 Cologne international furniture fair in Germany as featured in the April, 1972 issue of the Italian design journal 'DOMUS' . A copy of the original period documentation will be provided to the buyer on request. Literature: ' DOMUS' , April 1972, feature on the 1972 Cologne international furniture fair where the 'Corbi' seating element can be seen in the top right. Original 'COR' manufacturer's catalog, illustrates example in yellow fabric and confirms original design date of 1969;
