Armchair with hardwood frame covered with expanded foam. Not removable covering in stitched leather squares.
Wrongly attributed by some journalists of the period to Otto Prutscher, Hoffmann’s pupil and co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte, this armchair was produced and presented at the international exhibition held in Buenos Aires in 1910 on the centennial of Argentinean independence (la Revolución de Mayo). The designer’s preference for geometric compositions modulated on the square is well known and is characteristic of his most important architectural designs. For this reason his formal language was ironically renamed “Quadratstil". The sofas are simply a two and three-seat derivation of the armchair.
