Bauhaus S35 club chair by Marcel Breuer for Thonet. Among all the cantilever chairs of the Bauhaus epoch, the armchair S35, with its lightness, flexibility and comfort, casts a shadow over everything heavy and inert. In 1930, the modern lifestyle communicated by the S35 appeared visionary; today, it is part of our mobile and individual lifestyle. With S35, 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 S35 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 realized together with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer.
