rudolf horn – wall clock | hessel werkstätten, greiz | 1962

 


when I met rudolf horn some years ago, i asked him about the similarity to george nelson’s ball clock. he answered in his typical openness and kindness: why shouldn’t the people of our republic own such beautiful things too? [wood, metal and bakelite, dm. 25cm]

rudolf horn – lounge chair | röhl, potsdam | 1966

 


top-class design made in gdr at top-class auction. a find at tajan, paris in her current design-auction. the lot 326 shows a pair of rare lounge chairs designed by rudolf horn, but unfortunately with a false attribution. [chromed steel/leather upholstery, h. 71cm]

p.s. at the top of my secret wishlist.
