Haussmann 310 sofa

Product description

The special quality of craftsmanship, upholstery expertise and the modern age – typical Walter Knoll. And typical Haussmann 310. The legendary club armchair by Swiss architects and designers Trix and Robert Haussmann is back. And with it: the sofa from the newly edited range.

Designed in 1962 as part of the Swiss Design Collection, Walter Knoll is reissuing these classic pieces of furnishing history. The aim at the time: “To design a piece of furniture that offers the comfort of the classic Chesterfield but looks lighter,” says Robert Haussmann.
As with all Chesterfield furniture, the characteristic diamond pattern structures back and seat. The traditional upholstering technique of button tufting makes sure of that. A sign of masterly upholstery experience.
The modern age is reflected in the delicate legs – a tribute to the Bauhaus movement. Sumptuous seating comfort and slim-line tubular steel, traditional craftsmanship and ingenious metalwork.

“This club armchair has the charm of something that has grown old with dignity. And creates this inimitable ambience of familiar noblesse,” continues Robert Haussmann. Originality that is here to stay – with the quality and substance to be something special, not only today but also tomorrow.

Swiss architects and designers Trix and Robert Haussmann have been active on the international stage for more than four decades now – in architecture and product design. Their most highly acclaimed projects include the redesign of Zurich’s main station and the Galleria Hamburg. They themselves refer to their approach as Manierismo Critico: “[…] taking up lost tradition, pursuing its further development and giving it a contemporary new interpretation – combined with humour and last, but not least, a touch of self-mockery.”
