Erich Dieckmann, armchair model 'M42', walnut and fabric, Germany, 1930s

This is a rare Bauhaus armchair by the German designer Erich Dieckmann created in the 1930s. It's composed of walnut and upholstered with a striped fabric seat. The design features the Bauhaus philosophy, in which form follows function. The typical Dieckmann’s characteristics are clearly present noticing the strict geometry with rectangular structures and flat wooden battens. The chair is in good condition and the wood shows a beautiful patina.

Erich Dieckmann (1896-1944) played a role at the Bauhaus in Weimar. He graduated in architecture at Technische Hochschule Danzig (Gdansk). Dieckmann than studied painting at Dresden and was a student at Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar from 1921-25. He began early in his career to design furniture. Per example in 1927 he designed “Typenmöbel” for an apartment of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s architecture at Weißenhof-Siedlung in Stuttgart.

Of course, a locally organized reupholstery is possible as well.
