|about this Item:||
The famous architect Adolf Loos is responsible for this petite coffee house chair. Even before the turn of the century coffee house chairs were produced by THONET or KOHN in large quantities. Only formally these chairs were usually not something special, not as the filigree design of Adolf Loos. Fine he draws the 3 horizontal, the backrest. The plan view and profile results in a very attractive new image. Only by inserting these elements the chair shows far more especially, as his colleagues who inhabited in large numbers the coffee houses of Europe at that time.
