Description

Designed by Walter Gropius for his office as director of Bauhaus Weimar in 1920, the F51 Armchair, also known as the Gropius Armchair, in black ash with red upholstery has been meticulously recreated by Tecta and is exclusively available in the UK at The Conran Shop.

Featuring a solid black-lacquered ash frame, which supports a cushioned seat, the chair is upholstered with soft cavalry cloth in a vibrant red hue, typical of early Bauhaus experiments with primary colours.

A strikingly cubist design, the F51 Armchair is one of the earliest examples of cantilevered technology, a method that has become synonymous with the Bauhaus.

A pioneering master of modernist architecture, Gropius is globally revered as the founder of the Bauhaus School. Leaving Germany in 1934, he moved to London before eventually immigrating to the United States where he taught at Harvard Graduate School of Design. A visionary, whose goal was to make art and design accessible to the masses, Gropius is remembered for his immense contribution to design.
