Designed in 1926, Chair Stuttgart illustrates the geometry and rationality inherent in the expressive aesthetic of Richard Herre. Milled from solid wood, the characteristic curved backrest of Stuttgart embodies traditional craftsmanship and timeless elegance. Available in waxed European oak and walnut, the chair is optionally equipped with a removable seat in textile, leather and Vienna weave. As a work of significant modernity and presence, chair Stuttgart can be used as a sophisticated dining, executive or visitor chair.
The Stuttgart-based architect, interior designer, graphic artist, author and translator Richard Herre has only recently been rediscovered as an important representative of the New Objectivity of the 1920s. As a graphic designer, Richard Herre created the famous motif for the Werkbund exhibition “Die Form” in 1924. For interiors, he designed not only furniture and lighting, but also textiles such as curtain fabrics and carpets, creating holistically designed spaces of engaging stringency and surprising colourfulness.
With the reedition of designs like the Stuttgart chair and the Zet kilim by Richard Herre, an almost forgotten, multi-layered chapter of modernism can be experienced again.
