D 1-2 Bauhaus Cube SofaPeter Keler $6,504.00
Peter Keler designed his Red Cube chair in 1925 as a prototype at the Bauhaus School in Weimar, Germany. The Red Cube addressed the challenge of bold color in interior design as was perceived at that time. Upholstered in red leather, the original is held in the permanent collection at the Cantilever Chair Museum / Tecta Archive in Lauenförde. The D1-2 and D1-3 Bauhaus sofas are dimensionally extended versions of Keler's D1 Red Cube chair. Built to exacting standards by Tecta in Germany the sofas can be specified in Cavalry Cloth, Kvadrat Divina Melange and Hallingdal fabric as well as Tecta leather. The comfortable designs are perfectly suited for both high-traffic commercial reception areas and elegantly appointed residential interiors.

A native of Kiel, Germany, Peter Keler gravitated to the artist’s colony of Worpswede in the 1920s. Inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement in England, Keler aligned himself with the the Swiss-German Lebensrefor movement. The impact of the movement’s vision of far-reaching social and political reform is readily apparent in the sheer diversity of Keler’s output, which included painting, graphic design, architecture, photography and furniture. When his colleague Wilhelm Wagenfeld left Worpeswede for the Bauhaus in Weimar, Keler followed in his footsteps. In the summer of 1922, Keler became a member of KURI (an acronym for constructive, utilitarian, rational, international), a group of designers and artists with constructivist ambitions active at the Bauhaus. Following his departure from the Bauhaus, Keler established his own studio for fine and applied painting, graphic design for advertising and interior design.
