S35N Bauhaus Armchair

Among all the chairs from the Bauhaus era that utilised cantilever design, the armchair known as the S35 stood out for its lightweight structure, flexibility, and comfort. When it was first introduced in 1930, the modern lifestyle that it represented was considered visionary, and today it remains a symbol of our mobile and individual way of living. The S35 was designed by Marcel Breuer to incorporate all the functions of a cantilever tubular steel armchair within a single line that includes the armrests. Breuer's design achieved a double cantilever effect, allowing the seat and armrests to flex independently of each other. The cantilevered flexing movement of the seat and backrest frame towards the back is balanced by the flexing armrests. For those seeking extra comfort, a matching footstool is also available, which is designed as a cantilever piece of furniture. The comfortable club chair S 35 made its debut in 1930 as part of the furnishing of a prototype high-rise apartment, which Breuer collaborated on with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer. This iconic armchair has become an enduring symbol of the Bauhaus movement and modern design.
