Richard Riemerschmid designed the original model of the ‘Musikzimmerstuhl’ in 1898/99. The so-called “Music roo chair” was part of the interieur of a music salon, which was designed by the Munich Art Nouveau architect Richard Riemerschmid for the “Deutsche Kunstausstellung Dresden 1899”. The original chair was manufactured by the Vereinigte Werkstätten für Kunst und Handwerk, Munich.
On the occasion of the company’s 100 anniversary a limited edition of ca. 100 copies of this model were made. This example made in lacquered beech with a red leather seat. In all original pristine condition. We do have a pair available, priced individually.
