Concept

The Frankfurt furnitures are part of a series designed by the architects Norbert Berghof, Michael Landes and Wolfgang Rang representing the German version of Postmodernism and, within this version, more specifically representing the "Darmstädter-Frankfurter Schule". The designs of this production series are produced in a limited quantity of 100 pieces each and are numbered, dated and signed.

The Frankfurt chair F3 is an artifact in bird´s eye maple, ebony, bruyère, root timber, solid maple, bubinga, ivory, horn, brass, gold leaf, marble types Lasa and Aosta, Granit Bahia Blue etc. Every single piece is an individual construction - a hand-made masterpiece. The Frankfurt furnitures are works of art. They have been part of significant exhibitions and many international museums have bought them.

The Sternensessel F3 (“Star armchair”) is purely a mini architectural piece in which many typical architectural forms can be observed such as the conical and spherical formed Egyptian-style fixture of the arm rests, the thickened and gold-metallic base areas of the chair legs and the engraved mid and end pieces of the side legs which are designed like pillars. The star-shaped inlay work on the outer side of the chair body emphasises the illusionary, dreamlike poetic moment of the post modern movement.
The chair is limited to 100 and each armchair is dated and numbered.
