The new #47 chair has a fully upholstered seat with built-in flex function. A spring mechanism allows the backrest to adjust to body movements for maximum back support in varying seating positions. 

The timeless and durable underframe in solid wood holds the puffy seat, which is covered in thick foam for ultimate comfort. The edges of the wooden legs and plump seat are rounded and give the chair a softness in terms of both shape and feel.  

All you want to do is sink into this comfortable and comforting chair – and stay there. 

The seat is upholstered with leather or fabric from our collection.
