209 - Favourite chair of architects

This elegant bentwood classic is a masterpiece in its construction and production: the projecting frame that forms both the backrest and armrest is bent into its form from a single piece of solid beech wood. Like the original model of all bentwood chairs, no. 214, chair no. 209 also consists of only six parts. Due to its aesthetic reduction in combination with the organic form, it almost looks like a sculpture. Swiss architect Le Corbusier was fascinated with it and used it in many of his buildings, for example the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart in 1927. He once remarked that this chair "possesses nobility.“

Professional wood benders produce a diversity of bentwood furniture in our Frankenberg facility. A total of 147 individual work steps are necessary to finish the classic 210 R.
