‘Atelier Chair’ by EOOS for Walter Knoll

Gernot Bohmann, Harald Gründl and Martin Bergmann, aka the Viennese design practice EOOS have recently realised this pared-down, steel-and-leather armchair for the German upholstered furniture specialists, Walter Knoll. Called ‘Atelier Chair’, the elegant design features an adjustable headrest while the exposed tubular steel frame recalls the aesthetics of modernist designs associated with the Bauhaus. The chair was unveiled earlier in April during Milan’s Salone del Mobile.

More about the design:

 

‘“Form follows function” – this legendary slogan by Sullivan has left its mark on generations of designers. Reduced form, visible function – the insignia of functional design. But there is more to it than that today: the sensuousness of the minimalist. EOOS has taken the idea of functional clarity and given it its own interpretation. And even in the age of iPad and iPhone, we can see that functionality can be emotive.

 

‘The Atelier Chair is a gentle ascetic. Leather and steel are the skin and bones – minimised and timeless, elegant and sustainable. Taut leather stretches over the steel framework – just as you would expect of genuine tubular steel furniture. The visible construction reveals the function of the chair. And ticking all the boxes: the patina effect – because leather does not reveal its true beauty until it is in use.’
