Leowald had the ingenious idea of combining a choice of two different seat shells - with and without armrests - with different frame finishes to cater for diverse applications, thus meeting varying requirements: ranging from concourse seating and stacking chairs for event spaces to furniture for a dining room and offices. The need for hierarchical differentiation resulted in an extensive product family that emerged over the course of years: chairs with seat shells with varying dimensions and features which were mounted onto various types of frames.

The four-legged 225/2 had a seat and back cushion to meet higher demands on comfort.
