Product description

The design for the Kreuzzargenstuhl (cross-frame chair) dates back to the year 1952. It has been in production ever since – from 1999 on as a new edition. The model displays Bill’s skills as a product designer and received several awards, including the “die gute form” award by the Swiss Werkbund in the fifties.

The leg structure with its crossed frame connection is Bill’s own invention. This supports the seat surface in the middle and gives the chair the greatest possible static stability. From a design point of view, the contrast between the thin seat surface and the strong framework emphasises its technical construction and gives the impression of strength and a tactile feel. And, last but not least, it’s extremely comfortable.
