Erich Dieckmann

Kauernik 1896 - Berlin 1944


Erich Dieckmann studied architecture at Danzig Polytechnic from 1918 until 1920. After finishing the foundation course, however, Erich Dieckmann dropped out and went to Dresden, where he began to study painting and drawing. In 1921 Erich Dieckmann enrolled at the Bauhaus in Weimar. Between 1921 and 1925 Dieckmann served an apprenticeship there as a carpenter. When the Bauhaus school moved to Dessau in 1925, Erich Dieckmann transferred to the Staatliche Bauhochschule in Weimar and was head of the carpentry workshop there from 1925 until 1930.
From 1931 until he was dismissed by the National Socialists in 1933, Erich Dieckmann was head of the carpentry workshop at the Kunstgewerbeschule Burg Giebichenstein in Halle.
From 1939 Erich Dieckmann lived in Berlin. Erich Dieckmann was one of the most important furniture designers at the Bauhaus, developing type ranges for seat furniture. Like Marcel Breuer, Erich Dieckmann experimented with steel tubing but is primarily known for his standardized wooden furniture. Dieckmann's designs for seat furniture are stringently geometric, with frames based on right angles and constructed of almost pieces of wood that were either almost square in cross section or flat; another feature typical of Dieckmann's work is linking armrests and chair legs in a runner construction.
By using quality hardwoods such as beech, cherry, oak, and ash as well as cane matting, Dieckmann loosened up the stringent geometry of his designs; on the other hand, however, standardization and normed proportions were to keep the prices of these mass-produced pieces of furniture as low as possible.
