What should a shelf do other than to store things? Books, objects, memories. This was exactly what Marcel Breuer developed the S44 for. The four height-adjustable shelves are supported by a pair of chrome-plated tubular steel columns on wide-set feet. Clear and simple. Above all, its construction is instantly comprehensible. The height of the shelves can be adjusted with supports; optionally, a shelf can be added in ash or lacquered oak veneer as well as chrome bookends. What Marcel Breuer developed in 1932 for the Clarté House in Geneva is a declaration of love for the things in life that surround us and find a place on these shelves.
With a width of 140 centimetres and a height of 121 centimetres the shelf is ideal for office landscapes that can do without heavy room dividers, but confidently embrace light and air as design elements.
Its simple, meticulously designed appearance is a consequence of this way of thinking. “The objects have different appearances as a result of their different functions,” Breuer wrote. Together they give rise to our style. This is exactly what you can experience with the S44. The materials and their joining are precisely discernible, nothing is superfluous or out of place. This is how classics are born that still endure today and will continue to inspire us tomorrow.
The Bauhaus Archive in Berlin has officially licensed the S44 from Tecta as an authentic Bauhaus production, made to the exact proportions of the original design.

For over 40 years family-owned Tecta’s mission and responsibility has been to preserve and review the best ideas and designs of modernism as created by the Bauhaus movement in Weimar or Dessau while being driven by the desire to think forward, enhance and adapt them.
Tecta unites craftsmanship, values and family tradition with the Bauhaus school of thought. This is what makes the company so unique with its cycle of developing and cherishing what the Bauhaus movement once taught and merged with traditional craftsmanship. Both today and yesterday.
AVG (Average) is the balance between design and function. The name closely reflects our philosophy; to source everyday, useful products from around the world that serve a meaningful purpose in our customers lives, while adding to the overall beauty of their daily life.
