S 43 from thonet
In all of his furniture designs Mart Stam relied on straightforward forms, an aesthetic economy of means in the construction and the benefit of improved seating comfort. In the case of S 43 he combined the tubular steel frame with moulded plywood shells for seat and back and thus created an absolute reduction. Due to the comfortable flexing effect of the frame, upholstery is unnecessary. Its clear, reserved form makes this cantilever chair an exemplary design in the spirit of modernism. Today, Thonet owns the artistic copyright for this strictly cubic “chair with no rear legs”.
The cantilever chairs from the S 43 range are available with or without armrests. The frame is optionally available in tubular steel, chrome-plated or painted. However, the classic chair is not stackable with a frame colour coating. The moulded wood fittings can be ordered in beech stained, opaque coated or with textured lacquer. The chairs are also available with upholstered seats, covered with leather or fabric.
Parkhaus wool felt seat pads for cantilever chair S 43 are available in our shop.
