Design WALTER KNOLL TEAM
A small wraparound seat that changed the design of waiting room seating.
In 1956, Germany was still subject to a classic style of furniture.
All of Germany? No, because a small wraparound seat appeared on the scene that would change the design of the time.
Its influences came from Scandinavia, the Bauhaus and the avant-garde.
The 369 armchair contrasts flowing, enveloping shapes with the linearity prevalent at the time; it is also evidence of innovative experimentation with materials and finishes
There is always a team behind a successful product - and that is also the case at Walter Knoll. With many years of experience, our R&D experts have been able to combine traditional craftsmanship with modern technology. Always looking for new ways to instill the word design into technology, construction, material, form and function.
