contemporary shelf / ash / steel
The designs created in Bauhaus’s metal workshop were milestones in the history of tubular furniture. More so, because from the beginning they offered the possibilities of industrial production with the aim of realising it as quickly as possible in close co-operations with suitable production facilities.
Against this background, the cooperation between Bauhaus and L.&C. Arnold Stendal began at the end of the 1920s with the realisation of various furniture designs in steel and wood that were already included in the Arnold catalogue at the time.
contor was compiled as a compressed programme with designs from a time when Bauhaus’s ideas also offered the conditions for quite revolutionary changes in office and contract interiors. This combination of models, quite classic by today’s standards, consists of desk ST 2000, swivel chairs 2601/2602, swivel stool 2603 and Bauhaus shelf 3620.
All the furniture is from the Arnold Bauhaus Collection, which contains important designs by major representatives of Bauhaus such as Marcel Breuer as well breathing new life into old, rediscovered workshop drawings by unknown Bauhaus artists.
