The new Chesterfield. The special quality of craftsmanship, upholstery expertise and modernity – that is what Walter Knoll is all about – as is Haussmann 310. Designed in 1962 as part of the Swiss Design Collection, Walter Knoll is reissuing the legendary club armchair by Swiss architects and designers Trix and Robert Haussmann. The aim at the time: “To design a piece of furniture that offers the comfort of the classic Chesterfield but looks lighter,” says Robert Haussmann.
As with all Chesterfield furniture, the characteristic diamond pattern structures back and seat. The traditional upholstering technique of button tufting makes sure of that. A sign of masterly upholstery experience. Modernity is reflected in the delicate legs – a tribute to the Bauhaus movement.
