Josef Hoffmann, bench, Austria, design 1907
This bench is specially designed by Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) for the Cabaret Fledermaus in Vienna in 1907. This building was understood as a place where the ‘boredom’ of contemporary life would be replaced by ‘ease, art and culture.’ The design of this bench fits perfectly into this ethos thanks to the sculptural construction of the bentwood. Hoffmann is an expert in balancing decorative and structural components in furniture, and this bench is a prime example of that. For instance, the frame is enriched with nice engraved rings and the sides are decorated with round spheres, bringing a more open look to the bench. The upholstery of the seat and backrest has a soft burgundy color and features illustrative flora and elegant lines, finished with a brownish braided piping. Overall, this bench is a standout and can be placed in an entranceway or serve as a taste of delicateness in any room.
Please note that the upholstery shows minor signs of wear and age, mainly visible on the braided piping.
