Making of Leadchair

Walter Knoll, 2012

Leadchair is the latest office chair series for Walter Knoll and is exceptional in many ways.
Here one can see the developement of the project. The chair is based on the idea, to think of it as a whole. The uncovered mechanism is open and was conceived from the beginning as part of the design process and formally treated equally throughout. 

Every part was individually engineerd, no part is taken "from the shelf". The seat, back, armrests and base are precisely matched and flow logically into one another. The finished chair is the result of a five-year development process, with special attention given to each detail.
