Erich Dieckmann for Gelenka DDP, armchair, beech bentwood, Germany, 1930s
This rare armchair is designed by one of the most prominent furniture designers at the Bauhaus named Erich Dieckmann (1896-1944). The design features a stable construction built off graphical components that are to be seen in the seat and the backrest. Besides the fact that the chair is pleasing to look at, it bears witness to the great craftsmanship and smart joint solutions that characterize Dieckmann’s work. There is a nice contrast in shape created between the organic, curved armrests and the angular frame. A nice patina is visible on the wood, which highlights the wonderful lines and curves.
Erich Dieckmann (1896-1944) played a role at the Bauhaus in Weimar. He graduated in architecture at Technische Hochschule Danzig (Gdansk). Dieckmann then studied painting at Dresden and was a student at Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar from 1921-25. He began early in his career designing furniture. Par example, in 1927 he designed “Typenmöbel” for an apartment of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s architecture at Weißenhof-Siedlung in Stuttgart.
