imm cologne 2020 has provided its annual update on the state of our lifestyles. Our review of the trade fair.
The new elegance. The designers had presumably imagined a shared aperitif or a conversation in the salon when they came up with this small armchair in 1957. The Lady’s Chair 375 has a light-footed and charming air. It's not a chair for lolling around, but taking a seat. And the slightly larger easy chair 376 is also reminiscent of familiar social rituals. A genuine Gentleman’s Chair, particularly supple and comfortable.
The dawn of a new age: the 1950s in Germany were characterised by joie de vivre and an increase in prosperity. The economy was beginning to gather momentum; the age of the economic miracle had begun. A new affluence and a progressive way of life were determining the everyday routine. The easy chair 375 by Walter Knoll reflected the spirit of the times. A fine seat, lightweight and comfortable. For the new retreat into private life.
