Familiar innovation: The tubular steel cantilever chairs S 32 and S 64

Among the tubular steel furniture models, the cantilever chair S 32 is especially versatile. It is at home in various design worlds and fits in with uncompromisingly modern interior design as well as in a diversified mix that gives space to different epochs and styles. The cantilever chair S 32 and the version S 64 with armrests are the most famous tubular steel classics. The appealing combination of new and old contribute to their popularity: Thonet’s tradition in the production of bentwood furniture with characteristic Vienna wickerwork, in contrast with the revolutionary use of tubular steel. Seat and backrest made of bent solid wood with wickerwork represent tradition, and the frame represents the present and future. With their versatility, they became bestselling cantilever chairs and still are today. Marcel Breuer designed the S 32 and S 64 during his time in Berlin in 1928. Thonet has been producing both models since 1930. Due to their aesthetic reduction and clarity combined with the airy wickerwork, the classics fit into the most diverse environments, from conference rooms and waiting areas to restaurants and private homes.

Marcel Breuer*

Marcel Breuer (1902–1981) Born in Pécs, Hungary, Marcel Breuer studied at the Staatliches Bauhaus Weimar from 1920 to 1924. After a short stay in Paris, he took over the management of the joiner’s workshop at the Bauhaus from 1925 to 1928, which had meanwhile moved to Dessau. During this time, he was strongly influenced by constructivism and De Stijl and developed a few trend setting tubular steel furniture designs. In 1928, Breuer went to Berlin and dedicated himself mainly to the field of interior design. Starting in 1932 he worked on several aluminium furniture designs in Switzerland. In 1935 Breuer moved to London, where he worked as an architect. In 1937 he was granted a professorship for architecture at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Later, he opened an architectural office there together with Walter Gropius. In 1946 Breuer founded his own studio in New York and realized numerous designs in Europe and the United States. He is considered one of the most important architects and designers of modernism.   *Artistic copyright Mart Stam
