With clear contours and sophisticated details, Leowald’s designs of chairs comprising a shell structure, shaped the character of Wilkhahn-specific “architect’s chairs”. In the mid-1950s, he presented a plastic structure as the “chair of the future”, that just happened to come true: due to much high flexibility performance, his glass fibre-reinforced seat shells were considerably more comfortable that Charles Eames’ “plastic chairs”, designed for Herman Miller.
The 2002 model with a four-legged steel tube frame marked the first and simplest example of an extensive chair family.
