Klaus Grabe Sculptural Deep Red Chaise Lounges
Klaus Grabe, lounge chairs 'C5', deep red wood, plywood, United States, 1950s.
These three red wooden slat ‘C5’ chaise lounges from the 1950s were designed by Klaus Grabe. The core of this design is the curvaceous plywood frame. Plywood was a new material and gave various new design options of which this is a sculptural, prime example.
Klaus Grabe moved from Germany to Mexico when the Bauhaus shut down. He left Mexico after a few years for New York where he worked in architecture and furniture design and wrote several books on the subject of design and interior. He ran "Klaus Grabe, Inc" from which he designed and sold his furniture. His main attribution to the furniture world has been his low-cost self assembly pieces that he introduced to the market. He used industrial, cheap materials such as plywood.
