Flowing lines, a sculptural form: the design of the 369 gave a shape to the new dawn of the 1950s. In its time, the armchair changed nothing less than the design language of an entire era. To this day, it remains a symbol of timelessness, and an aesthetic of lasting validity.
The optimally balanced, harmonious form of the petite shell armchair recalls an open flower, and to this day it fits harmoniously into a variety of interior design philosophies. Its contemporaries came from Scandinavia, the Bauhaus, and the Avant-Garde. The flowing lines and sculptural silhouette of the armchair were a complete novelty, standing in stark contrast to the straightness of the time. Experiments with new materials and the development of plastics made this possible.
Part of the Black Edition of modern originals: the 369 armchair in a glove-soft nappa leather named ‘Classic’ with a matt-black back shell. The armchair is part of the Black Edition of icons from different eras – from the 1950s to the beginning of the new millennium. Together, all the models bear wit-ness to an exceptional coherence and stringency.
