Designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub developed the graph high-end range of conference chairs for Wilkhahn. At the design's core is a seat shell that can be divided and put back together differently, with the armrests becoming the main link between the seat and the backrest. The original, unitary shell shape is still recognizable, but a high level of visual lightness is achieved by the cut-out section and open armrests.
The principle's benefit is that it is very easy to combine different types of seat and backrest heights to produce diverse models. Comfort also enjoys high priority. The concept includes the integration of three-dimensionally sprung comfort without involving any mechanics.
The Graph conference chairs, models 301/6, 302/6, 301/7, 302/7 are also available with a five-star base. Models 301/6 and 302/6 come with swivel-mounted columns and models 301/7 and 302/7 with precision-adjustable seat heights.
For the anniversary edition, the designer duo jehs+laub has taken the play of contrasts to the subject of upholstery. The upholstery stands apart for its stitched covers and frame fully fitted with foam, extra padding and wave springs. Details that are normally only encountered in exclusive upholstered furniture. The combination of the two elastic Powerjoint supports at the front and the supporting leaf springs at the back generates springy comfort in all directions.
For the Iconic Edition, upholstery foam, laminated on both sides, is added to part of the seat and backrest cover. Stylish, diamond-shaped top stitching is used to sew the foam to the cover. Due to all the many, three-dimensional mini cushions, the upholstery offers superior comfort. It also lends the chair a unique appearance and the centuries-old top stitching method adds a touch of luxurious quality. And together with the elegant, iconographic shape of the chair, the result is a seminal symbol with an aesthetic all of its own.
