Walter Knoll, 2006

“You’ve made an heirloom,” said Gerd Bulthaup to the EOOS team the first time he saw the Andoo lounge chair. Martin, Gernot and Harald call it “an experiment in timelessness”. There is indeed the air of a classic to the Andoo design. It is difficult to tell if the design is half a century or half a year old. With its clear lines, the Andoo collection – including lounge

chairs, footstools, chairs, extendable dining tables and barstools – though industrially produced, has a look of finest craftsmanship to it: thin leather edges, flexible backrests, delicately shaped solid wood frames in walnut, oak, beech or wenge. Its timeless design earned Andoo a “Focus Green” silver award in 2008, among other distinctions.
