Johannes Spalt for Wittmann, 'Constanze' daybed or sofa, black leather, steel, Austria, 1960s

This Austrian daybed named ‘Contanze’ is typical for Mid-Century Modern design from Austria. The tufted leather seat and back is constructed with a slick and clean metal frame. This particular model, with metal frame and black leather upholstery, is striking in its elegant expression. The elegant slim outwards tapered 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 piece turns from a comfortable sofa to a 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.
