Johannes Spalt for Wittmann, 'Constanze' daybed or sofa, cognac leather, metal, Austria, 1960s.
This sofa or daybed, designed by architect Johannes Spalt, is typical for mid-century modern design from Austria of the 1960s. The tufted cognac leather seat and backrest is constructed with a rounded base underneath, also upholstered in leather. A rather rare feature for the well known model called 'Constanze'. This particular model in patinated cognac is a rich and warm appearance because of this base. By only one hand movement the piece turns from a comfortable sofa to daybed.
Johannes Spalt (1920-2010) was a postwar Austrian architect. In 1952 he founded the collective "Arbeitsgruppe 4" together with Wilhelm Holzbauer, Friedrich Kurrent and Otto Leitner. Their ideas and designs are still a great example of Austrian architecture. Spalt, who also created many furniture designs, stood for the undogmatic combination of historical awareness and modern innovation.
