The first cantilever chair design in furniture history, the S 33 Chair in chocolate brown leather by Mart Stam has earnt its place in the design hall of fame.
Originally designed in 1927 for the Weissenhof-Siedlung housing estate in Stuttgart, the S 33 Chair was inspired by gas pipes.
Connecting the piping with flanges Mart Stam developed the principle of cantilevering chairs that no longer rest on four legs. Interestingly, at the time, Stam was not that interested in the flexing effect of bent tubular steel, a technique that would soon become instrumental in the Bauhaus school of design. Initially, his focus was on the simplicity of the form, which complemented perfectly the modern buildings of the time.
Finished with elegant chocolate brown leather upholstery, the S 33 Chair is sure to lend a touch of modern design to any space.
