A Cantilever chair

A cantilever chair is a chair with no back legs, relying for support on the properties of the material from which it is made. This famous form was designed by Mart Stam in 1926, and remains an important example of 20th century design.

Other important designers of cantilever chairs were Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer in the Bauhaus.

Alvar Aalto designed several wooden cantilever chairs, made from laminated birch.
