About this item

A pair of Modernist tubular cantelivered armchairs with a new upholstery.

This particular set was produced in late 1930's by The Gottwald Company in Czechoslovakia. Gottwald gained a licence from Thonet to sell chairs similar to Thonet's original K 411 armchairs. The letter ‘K’ in this case stands for Knoll who collaborated on the design and production of these armchairs at their factory in Feurbach.

Often this model is attributed as a work of Dutch designer W.H.Gibsen, who actually designed a similar armchair but with differently shaped armrests. The author of these armchairs is actually Walter Schneider, with the help from Paul Hahn.

Both armchairs are in perfect vintage condition.

The wooden armrests have been refurbished by our experienced restorer who specialises in Modernist furniture.

The steel frames have been cleaned and polished, there is some minimal wear acquired over the years. The original fabric was damaged beyond repair so we have reupholstered both armchairs in a textured fabric made of a combination of wool and linen by Kirkby Design. We decided to use this material because of its timeless and classic aesthetic as well as the way it offsets the chrome and dark wood armrests.
