Tecta Cantilever chair museum

In Bauhaus’ anniversary year, Tecta has given the Cantilever Chair Museum a makeover and opened its redesigned and excitingly staged exhibition with a big celebration. Each of the three museum halls was inaugurated with a corresponding piece of music, masterfully performed by the TenHagen Quartet. With this musical accompaniment guests could explore and discover the exhibition bit by bit.

The Cantilever Chair Museum features around 500 exhibits dedicated to the theme of the floating chair. A theme of the century, as Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius aptly put it: »Defying gravity and overcoming the earth’s inertia, in impression and appearance.« The exhibition features media stations, iPad guides, films and interviews, and easily rivals international design collections. We would also be happy to welcome you in Lauenförde!
