Dieckmann is among the most important designers of the Bauhaus and his tubular steel furniture takes a special position in the context of European tubular steel design of the pre-war era. "The fundamental construction principle of this design follows the closed 'Two line' system. Seat - backframe and pedestal have been built of a closed line each." Cf. exhib. cat. Erich Dieckmann, Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, 1990, S. 107, pl. 29 and p.177.
