Display cabinet by Marcel Breuer for Tecta, Germany early 1980s (SOLD)

Rare vintage vitrine in glas, wood and metal. Designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925. This model is produced by Tecta on licens – a custom made model in the blue and black colors. Made in the early 1980s.  “Marcel Breuer always had a structural and architectural way of thinking. The S40 glass cabinet looks like a miniature New York skyscraper: its stacked elements are clearly discernible, its construction surprising. It looks as if Breuer had simply inserted the base under its lean struts. As a result, it has two completely different faces. The sides jut outwards and inwards, creating a cantilever shape. By no means a monolith, Breuer designed a dynamic sculpture resembling large forklift trucks that pick up and transport containers at a port.”


Condition: Very good vintage condition.
