Jugendstil Chair by Richard Riemerschmid

About

The architect Richard Riemerschmid was a leading exponent of the Munich Seccession and designed many varied objects whose influence was felt internationally. His style was characterized by a straightforward simplicity unusual among Jugendstil designers, but this was always coupled with a restrained variant of the lyrical quality one associates with the best of Art Nouveau design. Riemerschmid's graceful "Music Chair" is one of the greatest chair designs of all time, still today a powerful influence on other furniture designers. The side chair on offer here is a rare example of a chair Riemerschmid created in 1903 for B. Kohlbecker & Sohn, the Munich workshop which produced the furniture for Riemerschmid's own house, the Villa Riemerschmid. This chair appears to retain its original upholstery and its charming lines benefit from a warm, beautiful patina. Provenance: The Collection of Barry Friedman, Sotheby's New York, November 1992, lot 80.
