The Munich chair by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton

This is the Munich chair. It’s a piece that impresses with its design and shape. It’s the type of product that you buy for the looks and that serves both as a functional piece of furniture and as an accessory for the home. In fact, this particular chair resembles a modern piece of art.The Munich chair was designed by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton for Classicon. It’s part of the Munich collection and it features a modern and artistic design. The designers were asked to come up with an idea for the Museum Brandhorst in Munich. They have developed three seating solutions for the museum. They then have been used starting with 2009 and served as functional pieces of furniture for the cafeteria, the foyer, the conference and lecture rooms and the lounge.

Since the chairs were designed for a museum, it was only natural to have such artistic designs. The designers that created them worked for ClassiCon. The company then developed the designs to the point of series production in close collaboration with the architects. The museum had great expectations both in terms of form and quality. The chairs needed to be aesthetically pleasing and impressing but they also needed to be durable.

The Munich chair was designed with a steel frame and solid wood construction. The frame also has rubber webbing. The upholstery is polyurethane with polyester fiber. The chair is then covered in either fabric or leather. It seems like a perfect design choice for the museum. It’s artistic, visually impressive and it’s also durable and strong.
