Airport Chair

The Airport Chair designed by Werner Sobek impresses with its extremely elegant minimalism. In its form, materiality and joints, there are clear analogies to aircraft construction.

Elegant Minimalism with Analogies to Aircraft Construction

The seat’s simple shape is formed by rolled aluminium sheets, its joints are flush and precisely manufactured. Even the structural cross-sections are minimised according to the respective requirements, as is usual in lightweight construction.
