By Allie Schmitz · Seattle, USA


Aldegra is a comfortable type family rooted in the materiality of Bauhaus tubular steel furniture. With inspiration from his steel Alder bicycle, Marcel Breuer, Bauhaus student and eventually professor, designed the Wassilly chair using tubular steel. The usage of a material with considerable strength and malleability, combines geometric forms and organic response, resulting in a tactile conversation between person and object, facilitated by material. Aldegra also expresses these properties by keeping a low center of gravity and exploring tension, especially at tangential points. Aldegra is best suited for larger display usages, including titles, headlines, and oversized copy. Both tubular steel lounge chairs, and Aldegra, are made for human use, interaction, and enjoyment.
