Adolf Loos used different versions of this model for various projects. We can find a version of this chair with leather or with fabric cushions in the music room of the apartment of Hugo Semler. Also in the apartment of Josef Vogl (both in Plzen), in the Villa Müller in Prague, or in the Khuner Country House in Payerbach in Austria. In his projects, Loos carefully placed furniture according to their purpose. We can find these chairs mostly used by Loos in his interiors by the fireplace and once by the big window with the view of the mountains in Austria. Architect Heinrich Kulka, who was Loos’s closest assistant and later become his biographer also used versions of this chair in some of his projects ( for example House no. 49 in the Werkbundsiedlung in Vienna) before his emigration to New Zealand. The pair is in original vintage condition showing only minor natural wear and tear on the fabric and on the wooden surface. Jute straps are still tight and don’t have any cracks or other visible damage indicating that the chairs were not used for ‘daily’ use.
