About the designer: When the Bauhaus school moved to Dessau in 1925, Erich Dieckmann transferred to the Staatliche Bauhochschule in Weimar and was head of the carpentry workshop there from 1925 until 1930. 

Erich Dieckmann was one of the most important furniture designers at the Bauhaus, developing type ranges for seat furniture. Dieckmann's designs for seat furniture are stringently geometric, with frames based on right angles and constructed of almost pieces of wood that were either almost square in cross section or flat; another feature typical of Dieckmann's work is linking armrests and chair legs in a runner construction.


By using quality hardwoods such as beech, cherry, oak, and ash as well as cane matting, Dieckmann loosened up the stringent geometry of his designs; on the other hand, however, standardisation and normed proportions were to keep the prices of these mass-produced pieces of furniture as low as possible.
