The most beautiful chair of the century In 1926 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed, in the truest sense of the word, from the wrist, the most beautiful chair of the century: the Weißenhof chair. A year later, in 1927, it was presented to the public at the Weissenhof exhibition in Stuttgart. The first drafts were created under the impression of the gas tube chair without back legs by the architect Mart Stam. Sergius Ruegenberg reported in 1985 about the development of the Weißenhof chair: »Mies came back from Stuttgart in November 1926 and told us about Mart Stam and his chair idea.

We had a drawing board on the wall, on which Mies drew the Stam chair, at right angles, starting from above. Ugly, something ugly with the sleeves. If he had at least rounded it - it would be nicer - and he sketched an arch. Only a bow from his hand on the Stam sketch made the chair. «In addition to the unusual shape, only one thing was missing: the seat and its upholstery. This is what Lilly Reich, interior designer, who worked in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's office from 1926, stood for. She and Mies came up with the idea of ​​equipping the Weißenhof chair with a mesh. Together with a master basket maker, Reich developed the new aesthetic that completed the expansive chair as a total work of art.

The Weißenhof chair from Tecta is still true to the original by hand by one of the last master weavers in Germany. to equip the Weißenhof chair with a mesh.
