Catalogue excerpts

Tradition. Innovation. A distinctive sense of style. L&C stendal Louis Arnold and his son Carl started out on the road to success with the manufacture of garden chairs. They were producing these modern items of furniture in Schorndorf as early as 1871, but rapid expansion resulted in them building a factory in Stendal just a few years later. They also increased their range to include metal washstands, sledges and wine-racks. They remained faithful to the spirit of their times, and in the early 20th century were inspired by the ideas of the Bauhaus in nearby Dessau, which was championing modernism....

If one looks back at the outstanding development of furniture design in the 20th century, two periods of remarkable productivity stand out from the rest: the 20s and 30s with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Heinz and Bodo Rasch, Carl Fieger, Mart Stam and Alvar Aalto, and the 50s and 60s with Eero Saarinen, CharIes Eames, Harry Bertoia, Max Bill and Egon Eiermann, to name but a few. The ‘arno’ chair belongs to this latter period. Designed in the 50s by L. & C. Arnold Schorndorf, the ‘arno’ was manufactured in Stendal until about 1960, before fading into obscurity, not least because of...

The ‘athos’ is a family of chairs with a variety of looks, making it ideally suited to serving a number of different functions in a work environment or in a domestic setting as a feature of your home decor. All of the members of the ‘athos’ family have a characteristically elegant and timeless form. Light, yet extremely sturdy, they can be stacked to save space and are ergonomically designed, making them ideal in any situation where comfort and functionality are of the essence: in conference areas, but also in seminar rooms, auditoria, and other highcapacity venues.

canto-1 The ‘canto’ is an unpretentious, beautifully proportioned stacking chair suited to an impressively wide range of uses and design options. The ‘canto’ marries a very high level of functionality with an attractive design. Individual shell shapes or imaginative cut-outs and patterns can be incorporated at little extra cost. The result is tailor-made seating; particularly beneficial where consistent brand awareness and the expression of corporate identity are concerned.

The ‘comeback’ is a tubular steel stacking chair which was used in its millions even prior to German reunification – at large-capacity venues, in restaurants, casinos, refectories and canteens, but also in homes. Now L &C stendal has given this successful and wellestablished model a new lease of life. Its ‘comeback’ has proved a resounding success: although the chair has undergone technical and visual improvements and is now available in a variety of different colours, its fundamental design has remained pretty much unchanged. There is little doubt that many of its users are attracted just as much...

The aesthetic design of the ‘gala’ is striking: the curved moulded backrest with its elegant central strut makes a light, cheerful impression. The comfort afforded by the chair is immediately apparent, and can be enhanced even further by the addition of seat pads and armrests. But the ‘gala’ stacking chair has yet more impressive tricks up its sleeve: each version can be stacked in even the most restrictive of spaces, and transported in large numbers without difficulty, thanks to its light weight and space-saving dimensio

The ‘easy’ can be linked or stacked, making it a highly versatile chair well suited to a number of settings. The frames interlock reliably and harmoniously with just a few moves for effortless linkage. The frame is also designed in such a way that up to ten chairs can be stacked vertically, with no contact between the seat areas.

The predecessor of this stackable skid-base chair dates from the period of close collaboration between Marcel Breuer and L.& C. Arnold. Indeed, more than 1,000 skidbase chairs from the L&C factory are still in use at the Bauhaus in Dessau today, including in the Gropius Room, the Bauhaus workshop, the Prellerhaus, and the offices. They continue to be used regularly for special events and panel discussions in the auditorium of the Bauhaus.
