Elegance with a wealth of innovations â€“ those are the attributes Baden-based contract furniture manufacturer Brunner uses to describe its new A-chair. The shell and frame of the stackable, linkable and modularly structured all-rounder are combinable in a wide choice of materials and colours. The chair thus aims to create a harmonious impression in all permutations and any interior setting â€“ regardless of whether it is used in rows or as a stand-alone. The A-chair was developed by Stuttgart designers Markus Jehs and JĂĽrgen Laub.
â€śOur design elegantly integrates all the technical details and has a very strong look,â€ť explains Markus Jehs. The basic shape of the chair is extremely simple: seen from the side, it looks like a capital A â€“ and thus provided the inspiration for the name of the model range. Despite its multitude of functional elements, the A-chair has nevertheless been given a distinctive design and forms a single, homogeneous whole.
