Walter Knoll - Atelier Chair by EOOS
“Form follows function” – this legendary slogan by Sullivan has left its mark on generations of designers. Reduced form, visible function – the insignia of functional design.
But there is more to it than that today: the sensuousness of the minimalist. EOOS has taken the idea of functional clarity and given it its own interpretation. And even in the age of iPad and iPhone, we can see that functionality can be emotive.
The Atelier Chair is a gentle ascetic. Leather and steel are the skin and bones – minimised and timeless, elegant and sustainable. Taut leather stretches over the steel framework – just as you would expect of genuine tubular steel furniture.
The visible construction reveals the function of the chair. And ticking all the boxes: the patina effect – because leather does not reveal its true beauty until it is in use.
The headrest is easy to adjust. The leather slides over the neck roll, the height of the backrest changes. The leather gives way to your shoulder to ensure optimum comfort.
The ideal place for daydreaming, resting and relaxing (:

The Walter Knoll stand stood out from the crowd with its outside walls covered in amorphous colour formations – “random signs”. The graphic concept and realisation were the work of “22quadrat”, an upcoming design agency from Osnabrück, Germany
Inside, Walter Knoll is exhibiting 9 new products and extensions to the range at imm cologne 2011, including Jaan Living, a new range of upholstered furniture: cosmopolitan elegance for international lifestyle. And Lox: the appealing bucket seat both for at home and at the office. As well as the new sofa Blue Two: prestigious and flexible, elegant and at the same time intimate. And the new armchair in the Living Landscape 750 range: the grand seigneur for modern club culture. With Foster 502: the new masterpiece by the renowned architect. And there are also additions to the Cuoio range, tables in solid wood and new occasional tables.
