Concept

Designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub develop a new, high-end range of conference chairs for Wilkhahn. At the design's core is a seat shell that can be divided and put back together differently, with the armrests becoming the main link between the seat and the backrest. The original, unitary shell shape is still recognisable, but a high level of visual lightness is achieved by the cut-out section and open armrests.

The principle's benefit is that it is very easy to combine different types of seat and backrest heights to produce diverse models. Comfort also enjoys high priority. The concept includes the integration of three-dimensionally sprung comfort without involving any mechanics.

As of immediate effect, the Graph conference chairs, models 301/6, 302/6, 301/7, 302/7 are also available with a five-star base.Models 301/6 and 302/6 come with swivel-mounted columns and models 301/7 and 302/7 with precision-adjustable seat heights.
