The steel tube chair D4 from the German brand, Tecta, was designed by the Bauhaus master, Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) back in 1926/27, as a kind of foldable brother to another of Breuer's icons: the Wassily chair. D4 is the striking folding chair, and therefore precisely mobile and light - it can easily be folded up and moved around. The airy, light and springy design was described in Breyer's first steel tube catalog as "particularly suitable" for terraces, summer houses, gardens and cafes. The D-4 chair with textile can only be purchased online.
Tecta's reproduction of the Bauhaus chair(s) is subject to approval by the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and Tecta's Bauhaus models are based exactly on the dimensions of the originals. Marcel Breyer actually pursued a kind of research into the essence of objects: What can and should a modern piece of furniture do today – that is, in Germany in the 20s? The object's function determines its form.
Breuer was thus a true exponent of the functionalist aesthetics of the 20s and founded the company, Standardmöbel. The name itself tells the story: He sought to unite art and industry by producing standardized objects that could be made available to the vast majority.
