Details so minimal that you don’t notice them at first sight: a more pronounced curve to the backrest, a slight forward incline to the seat frame and rear legs with a larger radius. The “icon” chair is the new, modern interpretation of the “classic” chair manufactured since 1918. The update offers fresh proportions, a dynamic look and optimal seating comfort. With the “icon” chair, horgenglarus is once again making a statement in the contemporary furniture manufacturing sector. The seat frame, rear legs and backrest are firstly cut to size and then carefully bent on the more than 100‐year‐old machines before being finished with state‐of‐the‐art CNC technology. Another special feature: “icon” is the only chair with an upholstered seat boasting the same ergonomical, three‐dimensional recess as the wooden model. There are thus two “icon” versions to choose from: the puristic wooden version or with a seat upholstered in leather or fabric.
Personalisations in terms of the colour and wood used are also possible on request. With this new design, horgenglarus is transporting the classic aesthetics of the stained chair into the urban lifestyle of the 21st century. The requirements on high‐quality stability and distinctive designs are what has been amazing horgenglarus customers for over 130 years.
