S 35 LV By Thonet
Sled base cowhide armchair with armrests
This comfortable club chair was presented in 1930 at the Paris Grand Palais as a contribution by the Deutscher Werkbund. Together with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer organised this premiere of contemporary German furniture production in France. With the S 35 he succeeded in integrating all of the functions of a tubular steel cantilever chair with the construction of a single uninterrupted line. The cantilever effect was thus doubled because the armrests, which flex independently from the seat, balance the swinging of the seat and backrest frame that projects towards the back. A matching footstool is available.
