The M10-4 Table, designed by Erich Brendel for TECTA, is a reproduction of the revolutionary, original design of 1924, which has influenced a massive number of space saving tables since its inception.
Erich Brendel was one of the participants at the Bauhaus School and in 1923 he was one of the interior designers involved in decorating the House at Horn in Weimar. It provided "the greatest comfort with the greatest economy by the application of the best craftsmanship and the best distribution of space in form, size, and articulation" according to Gropius, the head of the Bauhaus School.
Erich Brendel (1898-1987), was a carpenter's apprentice in the Bauhaus School and later a well-known architect in Frankfurt, Germany.
In 1923 he was one of the interior designers involved in decorating the House at Horn in Weimar. It provided "the greatest comfort with the greatest economy by the application of the best craftsmanship and the best distribution of space in form, size, and articulation" according to Walter Gropius, the head of the Bauhaus School. He was one of the few craftsmen who were able to prevail at the Bauhaus workshops with their own designs.
TECTA is a furniture manufacturing company based in Lauenförde, Germany. It was founded in 1956 by the architect Hans Könecke. The company name comes from Latin, and means "to design" or "to execute". In 1972 Werner and Axel Bruchhäuser took over the company, and Bruchhäuser remains in charge to this day, jointly since 2001 with his nephew Christian Drescher.
The product line of Tecta consists of Bauhaus re-editions, such as the iconic cantilever chair, and derivative designs. Numerous items of furniture created by avant-garde designers of the 1920s have been mass-produced for the first time by Tecta. Tecta’s faithful and licensed re-editions of Bauhaus models are approved by the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and bear as an imprint the Bauhaus symbol designed by Oskar Schlemmer in 1922 at the original Bauhaus school in Weimar.
Tecta also works with a variety of contemporary architects and artists to create modern furniture based on Bauhaus principles.
Tecta continues to work in the commitment to the Modern Movement - a movement which, as architect Peter Smithson put it, "…is not legacy in the sense of a sum of money to be spent or speculated with…it is a genetic stance, a responsibility…something to live up to."
