PRINCIPLES

Erich Dieckmann was the name who applied wooden furniture to the Bauhaus movement. He used sturdy elements to form rectangular frame constructions of which were twisted with the warm touch of wood. His significant concentration on the practical realization of design led to the standardization of production. He was the pioneer of his era in generating Typenmöbel -literal translation as “type-furniture”- which briefly means a series of mass-produced furniture. 

„The character of the chair can be seen most clearly from its side view […]. The front view cannot provide any information. So the following applies: The character of the chair is determined by its profile.“

—ERICH DIECKMANN

FEATURES

Dieckmann has elaborated on the dimensions in order to create normed proportions and lift the severity of the cubic framework. Derived from human body size, all sections were carefully measured and implemented. Chairs from the same collection are differentiated through small but significant details.

 

For instance, armrests and legs are directly linked in D1+, while D2 consists of slanted rear feet. D1 is a rigid yet comfy chair suitable for various occasions. D1+ has a reasoned character with adeptly balanced lines. D2 is the result of the keen structure and light aesthetics.
