Marcel Breuer (Hungary/usa 1902-1981)

First edition model b34 cantilever chair from the 1920s/30s for Thonet.

These early versions had the curved under-seat to the frame.

The thick velvet type fabric to the seat and back have been on the chair for many years. They may be original to the chair as we have found Breuer chairs in the Bauhaus archives with the same type of fabric.

Mart Stam (Netherlands, 1899-1986)

B263 Chrome-plated steel and plywood chair

Designed: 1930-31

Production: Thonet, Frankenberg (Pre-1935)

The Dutch modernist architect, urban planner and furniture designer Mart Stam’s career intersects with important moments in the history of 20th-century European architecture, including chair design at the Bauhaus, the Weissenhof Estate, The Van Nelle Factory, buildings for  Ernst May’s Frankfurt housing project, then to Russia with the idealistic May Brigade, to postwar reconstruction in Germany. His style of design has been classified as new Objectivity, an art movement formed during the depression in 1920’s Germany, as a counter-movement and an out growth of Expressionism.

This B263 cantilever chair retains its black surface.To the back is the small Thonet metal badge.

Literature: Deutsche Stahlrohrmöbel, p. 115; Mart Stam, p.8; Thonet Stahlrohrmöbel, p.15 (Variation).

78 x 44 x 45 cm
