The Wilkhahn 230 product family is designed to furnish areas where professional handling is as important as convincing aesthetics. The range combines minimum material input, maximum transparency, and inspired functionality to create an ambiance that is loose and light while remaining distinctive. The family of this office chair includes a multi-purpose chair or counter height stool, visitor or office swivel chair, low, high, or cafeteria tables, or also a variably configurable bench.
The original design for the Aline family was the skid-base chair. It has a cantilever seat and back frames in high-performance polyamide and a graceful skid-base frame in bright chromium-plated steel rod form a stable structural grid with slender material cross-sections and low weight. The resilient, color-matched covering adapts to the widest variety of different body dimensions, and permanent ventilation for the body contact ensures a pleasant and relaxed sitting experience. The ingenious feature is the elegant design of the seat frame using the “principle of interlocking rails”: the self-engaging, stackable seat frame allows neat, extremely compact storage while protecting the fabric, membrane-like upholstery.
The 230 range chair is, therefore, an ideal multi-purpose chair that fulfills the following performance requirements:
- It can stand alone, be casually grouped, or used as concourse seating
- It is suitable for both short and long periods of sitting
- It combines a high degree of standardization with a wide scope of application
- Low weight and robust materials reduce operating costs
