lucas schnaidt series produces peter zumthor's own home-designed chair

The chair comes in two finishes, a light one and a dark variation called ‘Haldenstein Ebony’. Both are distinctive in that they are upholstered in hand-sewn, vegetable-tanned young bull leather from southern Germany and the upholstery is made of natural rubber and natural coconut. Further comfort is provided by a Nosag under-springing on the seat and back. The turned chair legs are made of solid German pear wood that has been vegetable waxed, oiled and hand polished.

Each piece is numbered and certified with embossing, its seat height is 45.5 cm and it weighs 9 kg. But these are just numbers, the chair’s true quality is felt in the sitting – or even better, the owning.
