Vlastislav Hofman designed this chair and armchair as part of an interior for the sculptor Josef Mařatka. Their austere appearance is softened by the detail of the bevelled edges of the legs and the triangular surfaces of the veneer covering the whole piece. A Cubist masterpiece, several were recently bought from Modernista for the refurbished Wedding Hall at the Prague Old Town Hall.

Reproduction of the original held by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.

Material: stained oak veneered blockboard frame, embossed leather
