Peter Keler designed his Red Cube chair in 1925 as a prototype at the Bauhaus School in Weimar, Germany. The Red Cube addressed the challenges 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 Kvadrat Divina Melange and Hallingdal fabric as well as Tecta leather. The comfortable, iconic, design is perfectly suited for both high-traffic commercial areas and residential interiors.

A native of Kiel, Germany, Peter Keler was an active participant in the artist’s colony of Worpswede in the early 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 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, advertising and interior design.
