Ad for Jupp Ernst Chair by Helmut Lortz

helmut lortz

I want this chair! It was designed by Jupp Ernst and manufactured by Polstermobelfabrik Eugen Schmidt Gmbh during the 1950s. If the chair wasn’t cool enough, Helmut Lortz nailed it on the design of the AD. Someone needs to buy me this chair along with a Robin Day Form Unit Sofa. Please?

That is such a great ad and a great piece of design – I love the little white arrow and the strength of the red and black! Very cool!

Hello. Excellent choices in almost every post. Been coming here for months for inspiration.
