Stam Side Chair - CH9116

Seat Upholstery

Inspired by Mart Stam, "Mart Stam Cantilever Chair" 

Interesting Facts:

  • Chair was introduced in 1926, unaware that three years earlier a colleague of Stam who taught at the Cologne School of Art, Gerrhart Stuttgen, had introduced a cold-drawn Mannesman tube that was eerily similiar.
  • Later Ludwig Mies van der Rohe invited Mart Stam to the Stuttgart Weissenhof-Siedlung, where he presented his version of the cantilever armchair. It was there Mart Stam learned of the methods of production and tools that were being utilized by the Bahaus laboratories. Though similar to his colleagues, Mart Stam was awarded the authorship of the cantilever chair design by the German court.
