A genuine classic. The Berlin Chair is once again taking to the stage. Designed in 1975 by Meinhard von Gerkan for the VIP lounge of Berlin's Tegel Airport, Walter Knoll has reissued this icon of design history. Clear, logical, authentic: the Berlin Chair – a masterpiece of modern design. Inspired by functionalism and the resoluteness of Scandinavian design, the armchair is still a prime example of timeless aesthetics today.
Shiny steel carries supple leather. Elaborately finished, with pleasantly soft upholstering. It is the clean lines, the materials, their innate harmony and the special top-grade craftsmanship that characterise the value of this design. And not least the precision: the art of leaving nothing to chance. More gently, more quietly, with greater endurance. Timeless and familiar in the very best sense of the word. For sensitive connoisseurship and orientation in a world of objects.
