Walter Knoll, 2012

This chair was the attempt to minimize the construction material in order to achieve a maximum of visual and actual lightness. The design is what you see, with as little additional filling as possible. This does not only result in ecological recycling, but also defines the form. The chair with its elements of the back, seat and legs builds an entity of precision and strain.


The parts complement one another. The logical consequence of a very thin outline of the back is a slim seat plat and leads to the hydro formed stainless steel feet. They again are especially strong due to a triangular shape becoming round. This is the perfect shape to guarantee stability without an additional construction.
