After severals years of development the German manufacturer finally realised Stefan Diez’ ‘Chassis’ chair for serial production. Made entirely with space-frame technology from the automotive world – a deep-drawing technique of thin sheet metal – ‘Chassis’ is hollow and light. In contrast to the hand whetted prototype with a leather seat Wilkhahn presented two years ago, the 0-series showcased at this year’s Orgatec is combined with a four-millimetre thick, finely grained polypropylene seat – upholstered, textile and leather version will follow soon.
