Chair 4 / Chair 4

Chair 4
Chair 4

Chair 4 focuses on providing sustainable design for as many people as possible. Smart detail solutions guarantee that its elements can be manufactured industrially by regular wood and metal workshops. In favour of an eco-friendly production process, all parts are dimensioned to their possible minimum. This fact makes the production within small to medium-sized businesses more attractive, which could result in a positive impact on regional economies. While the chair’s composition allows a high quantity output, it sets a high value on durability. Chair 4 is fully removable which also simplifies shipment.
