Tubular Bauhaus KS41 armchair, Marcel Breuer / Anton Lorenz 1930

An early functionalist chair, constructed out of two closed loops of tubular steel. It's in between the height of a dinner chair and a lounge chair and it's still very comfortable. Perfect for people who don't want to sit too low low.

The KS41chair was first designed as a prototype at Standard Mobel where Marcel Breuer and Anton Lorenz worked together. While Lorenz was mainly a businessman who knew how to obtain patents, Breuer was the head designer at Standard Möbel. But as Lorenz obtained the rights of the first cantilever chair by Mart Stam, judges decided that all cantilever chairs were based on Stam’s idea and so this chair too fell under the patents that Lorenz had obtained and Breuer lost the rights over his own design. This chair however is a slightly different version. The producer is unknown. I think it is quite interesting, just for that reason

It's in a good fuctional condition with clear usermarks: The leather has been replaced and the armrests have been repainted in the past. The frame shows a loss of chrome. One screw under an armrest is not original
