Most of these designers (or Architects) probably didn't think Neobrutalism when they were designing these pieces of furniture but we consider that these pieces of furniture illustrate grandly the idea of Neobrutalism by their clear lines, by their dark colors and by the avant-garde and futuristic spirit they project. 

All of these charismatic pieces of furniture offer a real presence and will definitely match with a minimalist space with raw concrete walls. Timeless design.

1. UBALD KLUG SOFA (DS 1025 Terrazza 1973)

Ubald Klug completed his training as an interior architect at the Art and Design College in Zurich. He moved to Paris in 1966. After working as a designer at the Mafia agency for several years, he struck out on his own as an interior architect and designer in 1972. Ubald Klug's areas of focus as an interior architect include exhibitions, trade fair stands, showrooms, shops and restaurants in France, Germany and Switzerland.  

This sofa was inspired by swiss mountains where Ubald Klugg grew up. The landscape morphology create raw and straight lines that are typically neobrutalists. The brilliance evokes the future.







2. Vittorio Mazzucconi Leather Positiv Plexi Italian Sofa
Italian 1970 plexi and leather sofa.

Vittoro Mazzucconi has never been Pritzker Prize or recognized as a genius in the field of Architecture and Design but for some unexpected reasons he delivered this absolute grandiose futuristic design in 1970. 

The transparent base evokes the modern idea that the sofa floats in space and the structural horizontal lines create a brutal effect.

 A real neobrutalist machine.

3. Joe Colombo Elda lounge chair, c. 1965, in moulded fibreglass, plastic and leather

Joe Colombo, born Cesare Colombo (30 July 1930 – 30 July 1971) was an Italian industrial designer, a painter and a sculptor.

The Elda lounge chair is a perfect symbiose between Design, Sculpture and Art.

A lord throne.


4. Zaha Hadid—‘Moraine’ Sofa for Sawaya & Moroni Italy, 2000

The Zaha Hadid Sofa reflects her latest buildings with the landscape morphology that creates continuity of form and fluidity of space. It results a sculptural piece of furniture, hybridation between Architecture, Design and Art. 




The F51 (1920) is not just any armchair, it is the iconic armchair for the director’s room in the Weimar Bauhaus.

Created in 1920, this armchair looks like it just came out of the factory. Walter Gropius was certainly a visionary far ahead of his time and a precursor of Neobrutalism.

Rick Owens is a huge fan of this armchair.
