Thonet’s S 32 cantilever chair (artistic copyright: Mart Stam) is one of the most popular and recognisable pieces of tubular steel furniture and a versatile design icon for a variety of settings and styles. The S 32 Lounge brings together architectural lines, a distinct design and yielding comfort. The springiness of its tubular steel construction is a key part of what makes it so comfortable. This new design combines the typical characteristics of a cantilever chair with all of the features of a lounge chair. To further enhance the chair’s ergonomics, the seat has been widened (58 cm) and is tilted slightly backwards. The S 32 Lounge chair does not have armrests, creating a relaxed atmosphere with no obvious barriers to communication, wherever it is used. The seat height of 40 cm makes the chair the perfect partner for sofas, with the added advantage of being lighter and more compact than an upholstered armchair. Occupying minimal space, the tubular steel frame creates a transparent, open and airy impression. As well as being the perfect addition to a relaxing lounge area, the S 32 Lounge chair can be used as a statement piece in coworking breakout spaces, elegant reception areas or stylishly designed private homes.

Marcel Breuer was born in 1902 in Pécs, Hungary. He started an art degree but chose instead to study at the Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar from 1920 to 1924. Breuer 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 moved to Berlin and dedicated himself mainly to the field of interior design. In 1931 he travelled extensively before starting work on several aluminium furniture designs in Switzerland in 1932. Breuer moved to London in 1935, where he worked as an architect. In 1937 he was granted a professorship for architecture at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he later opened an architectural office together with Walter Gropius. Breuer opened his own studio in New York in 1946 and realized numerous designs in Europe and the United States. He is considered one of the most important architects and designers of modernism. Marcel Breuer died on 1 July 1981 in New York. *Artistic copyright Mart Stam
