Johannes Spalt for Wittmann Sofa in Black Leather

Sale price$4,400.00

Johannes Spalt for Wittmann, sofa or settee, leather, chromed steel, Austria, 1960s

This subtle and modest sofa is designed by the talented Austrian furniture designer Johannes Spalt. The design is characterized by a solid construction based on sharp lines and geometrical shapes that are noticeable in the body of the seat and the chromed steel base, underlining the clear structured design. The metal legs elevate the seat in a graceful way, which establish an open and more transparent look to the whole unit. The tufted seat with buttons is upholstered in black leather. As outcome, this creates more visual interest and adds a graphical touch to the quite simplistic design.

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.
