Red Dot
In order to make the DU armchair as ergonomic as possible, the contours of a human body were measured precisely using a 3D scanner. The readings served as the basis for the chair design so that the backrest, for example, curves to fit one’s body snugly. This classic-looking chair is made of walnut. The seat consists of a metal construction combined with leather, a special stitching technique has been used to conceal the seam. Legs and seat are screwed together to provide the necessary stability.

Statement by the jury

»The DU armchair will satisfy even the most demanding expectations people may have of ergonomically well thought-out design. Moreover, its elegant appearance impresses.«
