Design: Architect Adolf Krischanitz
Bentwood is used not just as a light and elemental base material but also as a design element for creating four types of furniture with striking traits and specific uses and connotations. With the design of the bentwood armchair Adolf Krischanitz succeeded in creating a very distinctive conference chair. Its back rest and seat are fully padded, its legs and armrests are made of bentwood.
