100% Made in Italy. These tables are both part of the project “Équipement intérieur d’une habitation”, on exhibition at the “Salone d’Automne des Artistes Décorateurs” in Paris in 1929. The lines are simple and severe, a source of inspiration for many tables even today. The materials absolutely industrial: steel and glass. The tubular ellipse that forms the base of the table on the left was used by the aeronautical industry at that time. Beyond the beauty of its form, it was probably used also because it represented the symbol of the modern era: the airplane. The table, however, was not introduced in the market: the “ tube d’avion” was not easy to find, and the table itself required a great amount of careful soldering and polishing. But above all the line was considered too futuristic at that time. Left: matt black lacquered elliptical steel tube base, equipped with four adjustable supports. Glass top. Right: matt black lacquered steel frame. Polished chrome tubular steel legs. Glass top 15mm. Dimension: 225 x 85 H 72 cm
This cantilever chair comes from a prototype Stam made for his wife around 1926. He used pieces of grey tubular steel, connected each other by “L” joints, normally used for natural gas pipes. The stability was guaranteed by a horizontal bar, which kept the legs rigid, eliminated in later reproductions. Stam’s intention was to make a chair that was functional, modern, comfortable and, above all, lightweight and easy to move. This idea of a chair without back legs, which used the tensile properties of steel, was studied by many in that period (including Stam, Breuer and Mies), and its intellectual property rights were object of a dispute in German courts, which ruled in favor of Stam. Without doubts, it is still one of the best-selling chairs in the world. Polished chrome or lacquered tubular steel frame. Dimension: 49 x 64 H82 cm
