Description

Peter Keler designed his »red cube« in1925 as a prototype at the State Bauhaus School in Weimar. Keler’s object was intended for Farkas Molnar’s single family home »The Red Cube« and addresses the challenge of colour in interior design as perceived at that time. Uphols­tered in red leather, the original is held in the permanent collection at the Can­tilever Chair Museum / Tecta Archive in Lauenförde. Following his retirement, the designer was granted permission to leave the German Democratic Republic for a period each year and he became a long-time friend of Axel Bruchhäuser. Keler eventually gifted several Bauhaus originals to Bruchhäuser, including the first prototype of the »Red Cube Armchair«. Not only did he speak extensively about his friend Marcel Breuer – for whom he de­ve­loped his horsehair fabric in Weimar – Keler also assisted Axel Bruchhäuser to acquire an original Breuer piece (the designer’s first folding chair) from Pro­fessor Kesting of Ahrenshoop, who had purchased the object in the late 1920s at the »Neue Kunst Fides« gallery in Dresden.
