Bauhaus armchair by Marcel Breuer for Thonet 1930. Among all the cantilever chairs of the Bauhaus epoch, the armchair S 35, with its lightness, flexibility and comfort, casts a shadow over everything heavy and inert. In 1930, the modern lifestyle communicated by the S 35 appeared visionary; today, it is part of our mobile and individual lifestyle. With S 35, Marcel Breuer succeeded in combining all of the functions of a cantilever tubular steel armchair in a single line that also includes the armrests. Breuer achieved a double cantilever effect with his design: seat and armrests flex independently from each other. The flexing movement of the seat and backrest frame cantilevered towards the back is balanced by the flexing armrests.The comfortable club chair S 35 was first presented in 1930 in the famous Deutscher Werkbund exhibition at the “Salon des Artistes Décorateurs” in Paris as part of the furnishing of a prototypical high-rise apartment which Breuer realised together with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer.
