Designed by architect and Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, the Fagus Factory was erected in 1911. A landmark in the history of modern architecture, the Fagus Factory was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. 

Visiting the Fagus Factory in 1972, Axel and Werner Bruchhäuser chanced upon a group of white chairs in the vestibule. Axel Bruchhäuser’s persistent inquiries as to the provenance of these objects led him to a book on the construction of the Fagus Factory, within which he discovered a design sketch by Gropius. A request to Ise Gropius for a production license met with an enthusiastic response.
