A tubular steel classic in a contemporary living space

The young Cologne-based design company DIIIP has made a name for itself with its unconventional yet sustainable building and home conversion projects. With LOFT M, the team led by architect Jochen Reetz has transformed a three-storey extension in a former customs hall in Cologne's Rheinauhafen waterfront district, creating a loft-style home of around 180 square metres that is perfect for a young family. The high-quality interior design is based on natural materials such as clay plaster, rubber and silver fir. The fixtures and fittings are largely bespoke. The residents, who have a keen eye for design, have added a handful of iconic pieces such as the S 43 tubular steel classic from Thonet. Selected in the All Black version – with a deep black (RAL 9005) powder-coated frame and black-stained seat and backrest made of moulded plywood – the chair adds a striking accent to the work space of the loft apartment.

Whether in the home office or at the dining table, the S 43 cantilever chair is a versatile piece that embodies understatement and quality. All furniture designed by Mart Stam is focused on high utility and economy, both aesthetically and materially. The result is straight lines, a simple structure and optimum comfort. With his design for the S 43 cantilever chair, dating from 1931, Stam created the ultimate minimalist piece by combining a tubular steel frame with moulded plywood for the seat and backrest. The chair’s pure and understated shape were synonymous with modernism – and this iconic piece of furniture remains just as versatile in the living spaces of today.
