404 / Wooden chair


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A high degree of seat comfort, distinctive contours and clever details are what distinguish the 404 range. The seat and backrest elements consist of moulded plywood, the leg and backrest bars are made of gluelam. The seat gives the impression of being fitted like a slim panel. With its splayed legs – made possible by the large radii of the leg and back cantilevers – the range conveys a feeling of comfort which it also offers: No specific seat position is designated. Comfort is also provided by the elegant, moulded backrest which gives pleasantly when you lean back.
