“The future was suddenly visible!” Visible and condensed in a chair that followed El Lissitzky’s vision of “floating and flying”, without the need for four legs. The cantilever chair. A piece of furniture with a bent frame that makes those seeking relaxation almost feel they can fly. 40 years ago, Tecta started collaborating with Mart Stam, Marcel Breuer and Jean Prouvé to update this construction without back legs. Today, Tecta’s cantilever chair is a classic, icon and trademark.
The new Ökotex materials from TECTA are durable, skin-friendly and resistant. Wickerwork materials that combine look and feel and represent Gropius’ desire to see “art and technology” as a new unit. The tension between warm wickerwork and cool steel, between aesthetics and technology – this is what characterizes the Tecta wickerwork collections. And also the two new wicker materials that combine functionality and aesthetics.
