Vintage S34 Armchairs by Mart Stam & Marcel Breuer for Thonet, 1950s


Cubic form, clear design, fine proportions, and flexing movement: The development of the perfected cantilever chairs S 33 and S 34, among the first of their kind, today combines zeitgeist and a sense of tradition. “Why four legs if two will suffice?”, wrote artist Kurt Schwitters in 1927 after seeing the first cantilever chairs in furniture history. The two chairs S 33 and S 34 caused a sensation at the Werkbund exhibit at the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart.

Chair without (S 33) or with armrests (S 34). Frame chrome-plated tubular steel.
