Arm chair with hardwood frame covered with expanded foam. Cushions in foam and down. Covered in stitched leather squares. Kubus Armchair MADE IN ITALY.
Another example of Hoffmann’s strict geometrical lines and the quadratic theme is the iconic Kubus Armchair. Designed in 1910, it was presented at the International Exhibition held in Buenos Aires on the centennial of Argentinean Independence known as May Revolution. Hoffmann’s constant use of squares and cubes earned him the nickname “Quadratl-Hoffmann” (little square Hoffmann). Adhering to a design philosophy Hoffmann termed “Quadratsil”, the Kubus Chair betrays the designer’s love of geometric design in general and his fascination with the humble cube shape in particular. The chair’s uniform, individually hand stitched panels form a tessellated patchwork of upholstered squares which come together to provide a veritable mosaic of cool and comfortableness. The mathematical purity of its measurements coupled with the undeniable stylishness of its execution have meant the Kubus has never gone out of fashion.
