Designed by Heinz Witthoeft for Witthoeft Stuttgart in 1959, this modernist Tail 4 armchair, showcases careful craftsmanship synonymous with cubic architectural design due to its solid pine frame and intricate wooden joints. Wrapped in cognac leather, which is still strong and firm, this armchair has both an elegance and comfort feel with stunning original patina. The intentionally low seat height enhances the lounging experience, inviting you to relax, read, or enjoy the winter sun behind a glass window. Its versatility allows it to effortlessly complement various interior styles, from contemporary to traditional architecture.


This chair seamlessly blends form and function, incorporating architectural principles into its design. The balance between the solid pine frame, the leather upholstery, and the precise wooden joints creates a visually appealing and tactile experience. It provides both style and comfort as a seating option while making a statement as an architectural element.Letting this Tail 4 armchair into your space will add an architectural appearance. The combination of design, comfort, and architectural aesthetics creates an atmosphere of refined elegance where functionality and artistic vision intersect.


Heinz Witthoeft’s furniture systems, drawings, photographs, and graphic designs all contribute to his utopian urban vision. While they have a strong and iconic form, they also possess an appealing emotional quality that prevents them from feeling cold. Everything mentioned you will see back in the Tail 4 armchair.
