Josef Hoffmann Kubus Armchair:

The beautiful leather Kubus Armchair was designed by Josef Hoffman, a modernist pioneer using geometrical lines and mathematically inspired theme. Hoffman’s talent to combine classic design principles with modern quadratic methodology. Renowned for his approach to interiors, creating a body of art that reconciles all aspects of architecture and design. He had a preference for geometric composition and especially with squares, inspiring the refined Kubus collection to be reminiscent of cubism in Argentina in the 1910s. The chair plays with the viewers’ perception of depth and scale. This strong and simple piece merges craftsmanship and artistic conception and is built to last in quality and style. 

The armchair is both immaculate and functional with its cushioned cubes, upholstered in thick Italian leather, each cube stitched precisely for a seamless finish and superior comfort. Built from a solid-wood frame that guarantees geometric durability and sleek shape.

The Kubus Collection.

About the Designer

Josef Hoffmann

Hoffmann was born in Brtnice, Moravia (now part of the Czech Republic). his creative power and, above all, his feeling for design, played a major part in the shaping of the aesthetic perception and aesthetic understanding of the 20th century. He studied at the Higher State Crafts School in Brno (Brünn) beginning in 1887 and then worked with the local military planning authority in Würzburg. Thereafter he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with Karl Freiherr von Hasenauer and Otto Wagner. Beginning in 1899, he taught at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. With the Secession, Hoffmann developed strong connections with other artists. He designed installation spaces for Secession exhibitions and a house for Moser, which was built from 1901-1903. However, he soon left the Secession in 1905 along with other stylist artists due to conflicts with realist naturalists over differences in artistic vision and disagreement over the premise of Gesamtkunstwerk. With the banker Fritz Wärndorfer and the artist Koloman Moser, he established the Wiener Werkstätte, which was to last until 1932. He designed many products for the Wiener Werkstätte of which designer chairs, most notably "Sitzmaschine" Chair, a lamp, and sets of glasses have reached the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. In 1906, Hoffmann built his first great work on the outskirts of Vienna, the Sanatorium Purkersdorf. Compared to the Moser House, with its rusticated vernacular roof, this was a great advancement towards abstraction and a move away from traditional arts and crafts and historicism. This project served as a major precedent and inspiration for the modern architecture that would develop in the first half of the 20th century, for instance, the early work of Le Corbusier. Hoffman died in Vienna, aged 85.

  1. Cassian Baldwin

    So many results for Kubus Lounge Chairs by Josef Hoffmann but only this site offers free swatches and free shipping, and seems like they do direct B to C so pricing is very competitive as well, very happy with my cigar leather. Won’t recommend smoking near it whatsoever.

  2. Ace Maldonado

    Always a big fan of the Kubus Armchair, was stalking this site last year and finally got a pair (black) on a steal deal. Stunning look and quality. And if you’re a fan of mid century like me, get the leather for sure

  3. Nia Yang
