Johannes Spalt for Wittmann 'Constanze' Daybed
Johannes Spalt for Wittmann, 'Constanze' blue white and black checked fabric, steel, Austria, 1960s.
This Austrian daybed named 'Constanze' is typical for Mid-Century Modern design. The tufted fabric seat and back is constructed by means of a slick and clean metal frame. This particular model, with metal frame and blue upholstery is wonderfully balanced in its color palette. The straight slim legs create an open feeling and give the sofa the needed air to come across less solid and robust. By only one hand movement the 'Constanze' turns from a comfortable sofa to daybed. Please note that the original fabric shows signs of age and use such as tears and wear.
