Josef Hoffmann Kubus Loveseat:

The beautiful leather Kubus Loveseat was designed by Josef Hoffman, a modernist pioneer using geometrical lines and a 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 loveseat 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 Hoffman

Hoffmann was born in Brtnice, Moravia (now part of the Czech Republic). 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. 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, and a tea service has reached the Metropolitan Museum of Art Hoffmann’s style eventually became more sober and abstract and it was limited increasingly to functional structures and domestic products. 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. It had clarity, simplicity, and logic that foretold of a Neue Sachlichkeit. Some of Hoffmann’s domestic designs can still be found in production today, such as the Rundes Modell cutlery set that is manufactured by Alessi. Originally produced in silver the range is now produced in high-quality stainless steel. Another example of Hoffmann’s strict geometrical lines and the quadratic theme is the iconic Kubus Armchair. Designed in 1910, it was presented at the International Exhibition held in Buenos Aires on the centennial of Argentinean Independence known as the May Revolution. Hoffmann’s constant use of squares and cubes earned him the nickname Quadratl-Hoffmann (“Square Hoffmann”).
