01 product description
"Chassis" refers to the seat-frame manufacture which is based on innovative space- frame technology. Similarly to vehicle manufacture, the seat and backrest frame is a unitary structure formed from deep- drawn, thin, ultra-strong sheet metal. The same applies to the connecting points of the four chair legs which are welded to the frame. This technology combines elastic comfort, durability and strength with the precision and elegance of a fascinating design. These four-legged chairs can be stacked four high. And thanks to the sparingly used materials, the chair weighs just 5.4 kilos. It is also ideal for recycling. The frame is powder coated in black, white or grey. The unitary seat and backrest shell that is captured in the frame, consists of pure through-dyed polypropylene, colour matched with the frame. It can be exchanged, is easy to care for and tough. The plastic glides are suitable for both hard and soft floorings.

Anyone entering the “Energy” section of the Frankfurt trade-fair halls during the ISH is met by a broad range of different heating systems. Countless brands and technologies may leave the non-trade visitor somewhat nonplussed. The sector: between chaos and self-confident design.› To the article
Fire alone isn't enough
A lot is expected from modern wood burning stoves today. Not only are they supposed to look good, but they have the additional task of feeding into the heating circuit of an entire building. Uta Abendroth spoke with Stefan Diez about the wood burning stove he designed for Buderus/Bosch.› To the article
