Book presentation at the Leipzig Book Fair

Grassimuseum Leipzig, Pfeilerhalle (DE)
Book presentation: 22 March 2024, 6:30 pm (free entry)

The publication Stahlrohrrevolution!, which was published last fall, provides a great deal of new information about the development of tubular steel furniture at the Bauhaus from the first prototypes to early series production and examines the role of Kálmán Lengyel in particular. Together with Marcel Breuer, he founded the company Standard Möbel in 1927 to organize the serial production and distribution of tubular steel furniture.

In addition to Dirk Allgaier, Torsten Bröhan and Christoph Janik from the Bröhan Design Foundation Berlin and the publication’s graphic designer, Alessio Leonardi, will speak.

During the book presentation, the well-known tubular steel armchair by Kálmán Lengyel from the early 1930s will be on display in the Pfeilerhalle.
