In 1926, Dutch designer Mart Stam created what would become the first cantilevered chair, the Stuhl W1. From a prototype made of sawed-off gas pipes, the final chair was made from a single slender piece of tubular steel reinforced at bends with solid iron. The seat and backrest were simple panels of woven fabric. This unassuming yet revolutionary form is duplicated in the Vitra Miniature Chair W1.
