This publication provides an overview of the eighty-year history of the development of the cantilever chair. The cantilevered tubular steel chairs from the Bauhaus and German Werkbund environments have long been among the classics of modern furniture design. However, the idea of ​​the floating and swinging cantilever chair has not stopped encouraging architects and designers to carry out new experiments in a wide variety of shapes and materials.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name (June 14th – October 29th, 2006) at the MAK.

With contributions from Hannes Böhringer, Elke Krystufek, Reiner Zettl and Sebastian Hackenschmidt. With a poster by Elke Krystufek: Is Furniture Crime? Cuntilever/Cuntilove
