Herbert Hirche

The career of designer and architect Herbert Hirche began with a carpenter apprenticeship and the compulsory years of travelling, followed by a degree at the Bauhaus Dessau and in Berlin. Following several collaborations with Egon Eiermann, and from 1945 with Hans Scharoun, Hirche pursued his career primarily in context of teaching: a professorship at the KH Weißensee was followed in 1952 by an appointment to Stuttgart, one Hirche held until 1975. In addition to his various teaching activities, Herbert Hirche has always been active as a freelance architect, designer and exhibition organizer and has influenced the design of the post-war period in Germany with his harmonious, functional designs, often based on simple cubic forms. Numerous furniture and industrial products were created. Some of his most striking furniture designs, such as the H 57 armchair, have since been reissued by furniture manufacturer Richard Lampert.

The H 57 armchair is a rediscovered classic by Bauhaus designer Herbert Hirche
