Chair #240

—Designed by Adolf Loos (for Thonet)

Adolf Loos (December 10, 1870 – August 23, 1933) was one of the most important and influential Austrian and Czechoslovak architects of European Modern architecture. In his essay "Ornament and Crime" he repudiated the florid style of the Vienna Secession, the Austrian version of Art Nouveau. In this and many other essays he contributed to the elaboration of a body of theory and criticism of Modernism in architecture.
