Stuttgart Armchair

c. 1926

by Richard Herre
for e15

Designed in 1926, the Stuttgart armchair illus­trates the geom­e­try and ratio­nal­ity inher­ent in the expres­sive aesthetic of Richard Herre. Milled from solid wood, the char­ac­ter­is­tic curved back­rest of the Stuttgart chair embod­ies tradi­tional crafts­man­ship and time­less elegance. Avail­able in waxed Euro­pean oak and walnut, the armchair is option­ally equipped with a remov­able seat in textile, leather, and Vienna weave. As a work of signif­i­cant moder­nity and pres­ence, Stuttgart can be used as a sophis­ti­cated dining, exec­u­tive, or visitor chair. The Stuttgart armchair is offered with an optional seat cushion.

Richard Herre


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.
