Lounge Seating by Trix & Robert Haussmann for Knoll Int.

Lounge Seating by Trix & Robert Haussmann for Knoll Int.

The Lounge Seating was designed by Trix and Robert Haussmann in 1988 and manufactured by Knoll International. The mirrored Lounge Seating rank amongst the most important icons of post-modern Swiss design.
The Haussmann couple developed a ‘Critical Mannerism’. They have been questioning the modernist doctrine of continually inventing the new. In their work they turn to architectural and art history, to extract and update historic models. For the Lounge Seating they were inspired by the Weissenhof Chair of Mies Van der Rohe (1928). The Lounge Seating was originally called The New Weissenhof Chair.
By employing illusionism as a means of material alienation and through the optical dissolution of volume through mirroring, they create complex, illusionary, apparently infinite spaces, furniture, and objects.
The Lounge Seating is made of aluminum covered with mirror glass and black upholstery. Both sofas are in very good vintage condition. The mirror glasses has some minor damages as visible on te pictures. The black upholstery is authentic and minimally faded.
