Cantilever Armchair

Cantilever Armchair

Inspired by Mart Stam




This cantilever chair comes from a prototype Stam made for his wife around 1926. He used pieces of grey tubular steel, connected each other by “L” joints, normally used for natural gas pipes. The stability was guaranteed by a horizontal bar, which kept the legs rigid, eliminated in later reproductions. Stam’s intention was to make a chair that was functional, modern, comfortable and, above all, lightweight and easy to move. This idea of a chair without back legs, which used the tensile properties of steel, was studied by many in that period (including Stam, Breuer and Mies), and its intellectual property rights were object of a dispute in German courts, which ruled in favor of Stam. Without doubts, it is still one of the best-selling chairs in the world. Polished chrome or lacquered tubular steel frame. Seat and back upholstery in thick cowhide.
