Merano

Chair

Manufacturer

TON a.s., Czech Republic

Design

Alexander Gufler, Austria

Red Dot
Modernity and naturalness characterises Merano. The chair is named after the Italian spa where its designer was born. He now lives in Austria and this is perhaps the reason for the various influences detectable in the chair. It displays Italian temperament, Austrian constancy, the calm of a spa and the informality and fresh air of the mountains. The legs are held together by the seat and backrest which, jointly with the substructure, form a stable unit. The intersection of the bowl and legs creates the armrests. The chair is comfortable to sit in and has an attractive, simple appearance. Attention has also been paid to making it easy and inexpensive to manufacture. Merano is not only a chair for people with a sense of aesthetics, but also for those who want something practical for functional, everyday use. It is suitable for everybody, everywhere from the home to an art gallery or a restaurant.
