‘Graph’ is the new conference chair the Stuttgart based designers Jehs+Laub realised together with the German manufacturer Wilkhahn. In this short interview the designers explain how the cooperation started and how this elegant piece is built-up. Enjoy!
The German manufacturer Wilkhahn presented at this year’s Orgatec some intresting novelties, amongst them the ‘Chassis’ chair by Stefan Diez and the office chair ‘ON’ by studio Wiege. Michael Englisch from Wiege and Stefan Diez were so kind to tell us more about it. Enjoy! (more…)

Made from deep-drawn sheet metal: 'Chassis' by Stefan Diez for Wilkhahn
The ‘Chassis’ chair by Stefan Diez, designed for the German manufacturer Wilkhahn was definitely one of the highlights of this year’s Orgatec! Its frame is entirely made with space-frame technology from the automotive world – a technique that has never been used within the furniture industry. ‘Chassis’ is the result of promising fundamental research Wilkhahn and Diez dared to start five years ago. Here we have some images of the comprehensive design and developement process. Enjoy!
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.
