Design MEINHARD VON GERKAN
A design icon, a timeless object.
A true classic: designed in 1975 by Meinhard von Gerkan for the VIP lounge at Berlin's Tegel Airport, Walter Knoll has reissued this icon of design history.
Simple, straightforward, authentic: the Berlin chair is a masterpiece of modern design. Inspired by a focus on functionality and the purposefulness of Scandinavian design, the chair is still an excellent example of timeless aesthetics.
Polished steel pairs perfectly with finely finished soft leather. It is the clean lines, the materials, their innate harmony and the special craftsmanship that characterize the value of this design. And last but not least, precision: the art of leaving nothing to chance.
