Dieckmann, Erich

(1896 - 1944)

Erich Dieckmann was a German furniture designer. He studied architecture in Danzig from 1918 to 1920 and from 1921 to 1925 he studied at the Bauhaus in Weimar. In 1925, when the Bauhaus moved to Dessau, he became the head of the Staatliche Bauhochschule Weimar carpentry workshop. From 1931 until 1933 he led the carpentry workshop at Kunsthochschule Halle.

Dieckmann’s furniture had a sober, geometric design and he mostly worked with wood, although he did experiment with metal.
