Klaus Grabe, chaise longue model 'C5', red colored wood, plywood, United States, 1950s

Wooden chaise longue with an adjustable contour by Bauhaus trained designer Klaus Grabe. Two dynamic curved frames build the frame for multiple wooden slats that are creating an airy surface to lay down. The angle of the seat is adjustable through a mechanism at two legs.

Klaus Grabe (1910-2004) emigrated from Germany to Mexico in the 1930s. Trained at Bauhaus he worked together with former Bauhaus Michael van Beuren and Morley Webb in Mexico. Later on he left to work in New York City and founded ‘Klaus Grabe Inc.’ His main aim in life was to design functional, affordable furniture. He was one of the first to provide ‘prefab’ furniture that his clients could build together at home. His collection of prefabricated, easy to build up furniture included different chairs, tables, a desk, side tables and cabinets. The chaise longue model C5 was also part of the catalogue but than advertised not with wooden seating but with webbing.
