Sopron Castle District Revitalization

The Castle District of Sopron is a 40-60 meter wide boulevard, which was formed on the outer skirt of the ditch running along the city walls that encircled the former historical core of the town, on the so called glacis slope. Consequently, from direction of the castle walls the row of houses, mostly of Rococo and Louis XVI style built in the 18th-19th century, appears with alternating building height, developed typically on narrow plots. The only exception is one spot where the facade is interrupted by war damages and part of the castle wall reveals as a visual element. The outer row of houses consists of earlier, partly medieval buildings with wider lot divisions, resulting in patio houses that are connected to Castle District with passag... More

Bellanger Chair

The design of this chair emanates from the rise of Roman-Greek taste characterized by an uncluttered ornamental repertory in reaction to the exuberance of the Rococo production. The back rolls up and terminates in a sculpted volute movement; the wooden patina is light and precedes the propagandist style of the Empire dominated by massive woods and forms. The antique decorative elements are discreet, the refinement is amplified. Dimensions : Height : 90 cm Width : 46 cm Depth : 42 cm Wood: French beechwood More
