Vostra chair

Product description

Vostra exudes the charm of memory. As far back as the fifties, the armchair was courageous enough to make a statement about casual seating. Today, it once again stands for lifestyle. Unconventional and easily remembered, it soon became a symbol of the time of awakening. Today, still an example of the timeless quality of good design.

In post-war Germany, Walter Knoll was publicising a modern way of life. His son Hans Knoll supported him in this: in 1947, he sent his father the »Vostra« model, a small belted armchair made of beechwood, and designed by Jens Risom. With its clear lines, »Vostra« corresponded to the attitude to life and helped Walter Knoll regain international recognition. Presented in the upholstered version at the »Neues Wohnen« (New Living) exhibition in Cologne in 1949, the armchair was one of the first great seating ranges of the post-war era and became the embodiment of modern living.
