Vintage red leather sofa by Hynekk Gottwald, 1930s


About this vintage design furniture

Made by Hynek Gottwald, a company credited with being the pioneers of metal furniture. It has been restored and reupholstered by our professional refurbishing team in Czechia according to the original process. The chrome parts have been cleaned and professionally restored. The new upholstery is high quality leather, it’s very easy to clean and retains its colours very well even in direct sunlight. Sold individually This item features classic Bauhaus design elements. Elements of this style are neutral colours, and occasional bright primary colours. Bauhaus designers avoided the fussy and pretentious, looking for clean, modern lines instead. Perfect for a timeless, yet modern look. More about the manufacturer: Hynekk Gottwald was founded by Ignác (Hynek) Gottwald in 1894 as a shop with household goods, among other things, for the sale and production of furniture based in Prague. In 1913 he specialized in the production of then fashionable brass furniture (especially beds, bedside and flower tables). The heirs for the expanded production bought a former weaving mill in Brandýs nad Orlicí and founded a joint-stock company called Hynek Gottwald. In 1928, the company began to manufacture furniture from bent steel tubes, originally nickel-plated, since 1930 already chrome-plated. At the time, she collaborated with leading Czech designers, such as L. Žák, M. Kučerova-Záveska and J. Halabala, to design types. The permanent designer was mainly KE Ort. From 1937, the company began producing tubular seats for various means of transport (cars, trams and CSD cars). In 1948, the company was nationalized and incorporated into the national company Kovona. In 1995, the company CIEB Kahovec was established, which continues to manufacture special seats for vehicles.
