It looks as though the principles of Bauhaus design were taken and elaborated upon with the beautiful Chaise Triagonal. A rectangular sheet of metal was creased in the middle at 90 degrees, offering a rigid and sturdy seat.

Markus Franke's design is a striking expression of angles, with the frame of the furnishing made from thick pieces of timber that form brackets with 45-degree cuts. The cool metal top cantilevers over the warm wooden base with a lovely visual balance of material and composition.

Small triangular incisions in the top corner of the Chaise Triagonal provide a bit of extra detail for a chair that already becomes the accent of any room. Rational and elegant, the piece embodies the link between architecture and furniture design.
