A chair is an object that is popular with designers despite the challenges it poses. Its proportions are similar to those of the human body. “It is figurativeand always requires the same conditions. What attracts me is the sculptural andplastic element,” says Klemens Grund.
Grund came up with the idea of folding chair D7K while he was working for thearchitect Peter Zumthor. There he designed a folding chair with armrests that was also flexible. A piece of furniture you can put aside and offer your guests without it being a make shift solution.
The realisation of the D7 was a good piece of teamwork: In Martin Bereuter of Carpentry Bereuter in Bregenzer Wald the designer found a formidable partner for making his chair. Following the tradition of the New Vorarlberg School, Tectahas now also commissioned master carpenter Bereuter to make this delicatepiece of furniture. Today, Bregenzer Wald is already well-known for its craftsmanship even beyond the borders of Vorarlberg.
The region stands for authenticmaterials, for bringing together past and future, and for its design idiom and construction.
