Description

In 1931 Mies van der Rohe applied for a patent for a “multifunctional lounge chair”. It was to be both ergonomic and elegant, cantilevered and suspended, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. To this day, the suspended F42E lounge chair condenses the moment of flying in a piece of furniture that looks like a flapping wing, its silhouette exuding functionality, aesthetics and restraint. While its counterpart, the adjustable F42-1E with the same lying space, quotes the swinging lines of the cantilever chair in its cantilever frame. The reclining chairs were designed by Mies van der Rohe for a villa ensemble in Krefeld. The buildings have now become well-known museums: Haus Lange and Haus Esters, located right next to each other on Wilhelmshofer Allee in Krefeld. They were commissioned by the founders of the united silk weaving factories Hermann Lange and Josef Esters and were intended as private homes for their families. In 1930 Mies van der Rohe completed these linear, almost Japanese looking buildings and sketched the lounge chairs with a spring suspension for them, which were supplemented by Tecta. They both feature the cantilever frame and are still manufactured by Tecta today, bearing Oskar Schlemmer’s label for faithfully reedited Bauhaus furniture.
