Atelier Chair

Walter Knoll. 2012

„The Atelier Chair consists of several meters of steel and leather - in other words it consists of archaic, poetry and geometry. This chair clears the volume and individualizes the ergonomics.”
On front view the Atelier Chair seems massive, but from the side it becomes a line.

Stretched leather on a steel tube enables this. A newly developed mechanism allows adapting the height of the backrest to the user. This chair is the proof that a single, rightly positioned layer of leather supports more effectively than several cubic meters of foam material.
