Concept

Story
Like the bicycle. Breuer’s furniture pie­-ces use standardized materials and joints, are easy to move and allow views through the piece. Both product families also share an emphasis on linearity. In a design he sketched in 1922, Breuer undertook the experiment of combining the bicycle with seating furniture to pro­duce a couch on wheels. This project, however, remained on paper for a long time. Since 1984 Tecta has manufactured this couch, an outdoor vehicle thatallows the user to lie back on a wicker surface in the open air, and the leisurely follow the light that is reflected in themetal frame. This is an object of furniture that abolishes the polarity of relaxation and movement.
