ClassiCon Munich Armchair
Modern art of the 20th and 21st centuries deserves an appropriate setting, with a building and its furniture that is just as modern. Berlin architects Sauerbruch Hutton were thus faced with an exciting challenge when asked to design the Museum Brandhorst in Munich.
Three different seating solutions were developed for the museum, which opened in 2009 – for the cafeteria, the foyer, the conference and lecture rooms as well as the lounge. ClassiCon developed the designs to the point of series production in close collaboration with the architects.
Along with demanding expectations in terms of form and quality, the typical wear and tear that the furniture would be subjected to in the public space had also to be taken into consideration. Its durability was ensured by means of various tests.

Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch studied at the Architectural Association of London. From 1995 to 2007 Matthias Sauerbruch held professorships at the Technical University of Berlin and the State Academy of Art and Design, Stuttgart. Both have been teaching at the Harvard Graduate School of Design since 2007. Architects Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch have developed a signature architectural language that has brought the Sauerbruch Hutton agency for architecture, urbanism and design international recognition since its founding in 1989. A holistic approach to planning, from urban development all the way to furniture design, merges functionality with exacting architectural demands, sensuality with environmental sustainability. Sauerbruch Hutton’s projects, among them the Federal Environmental Agency in Dessau (2005) and the Brandhorst Museum in Munich (2008), have been awarded numerous prizes. Their first highrise, the GSW Headquarters in Berlin (1999), became part of the architecture collection of the MoMA in New York in 2009.
