Trix & Robert Haussmann
The new Chesterfield. The special quality of craftsmanship, upholstery expertise and modernity – that is what Walter Knoll is all about – as is Haussmann 310. Designed in 1962 as part of the Swiss Design Collection, Walter Knoll is reissuing the legendary club armchair by Swiss architects and designers Trix and Robert Haussmann. The aim at the time: “To design a piece of furniture that offers the comfort of the classic Chesterfield but looks lighter,” says Robert Haussmann.
As with all Chesterfield furniture, the characteristic diamond pattern structures back and seat. The traditional upholstering technique of button tufting makes sure of that. A sign of masterly upholstery experience. Modernity is reflected in the delicate legs – a tribute to the Bauhaus movement.
“This club armchair has the charm of something that has grown old with dignity. And creates this inimitable ambience of familiar noblesse,” continues Robert Haussmann. Originality that is here to stay – with the quality and substance to be something special, not only today but also tomorrow.
