Chassis is a milestone – in both conceptual and technical terms, as well as in the flexibility of its design which allows totally different interpretations.
For the first time in history, a sheet steel chair frame has been crafted with cutting-edge technologies from auto engineering. An organic shape has been fashioned that fuses with the seat shell to become a distinctive whole. Chassis is a multi-purpose chair that has won many awards. Depending on the version chosen it cuts an impressive dash in working and living environments: in studios, meeting rooms, cafeterias or workshops, in showrooms or dining rooms, hotels or conference areas. Take a seat and travel to the world of Chassis.
The designer’s objective was to create a masterpiece: like a stylish leather bicycle saddle, the chair was to combine stability and technical precision with a contoured shape. Something for people to sit on that never loses its fascination. A chair that is lightweight and comfortable, ergonomic and easy to get hold of. These visions led to new manufacturing technologies taken from auto engineering. With persuasiveness and tenacity the idea gradually began to take shape. One of the toughest challenges was also to achieve maximum strength with a minimum of steel.
