The iconic coffee house chair stands as a symbol of success, recognized as the most successful mass-produced product globally to date, marking the inception of modern furniture history.

A groundbreaking distribution model further set this chair apart: 36 disassembled chairs could be efficiently packed into a one cubic meter box, facilitating global shipping and on-site assembly. With its clear and minimalist aesthetics, this timeless classic has adorned a diverse array of settings for over 150 years.

Regarding sustainability, the wood for the 214 is responsibly sourced from well-managed forests. Its exceptional quality and enduring aesthetics contribute to its remarkable longevity, allowing for easy repairs at any time. These features impressed the jury of the German Sustainability Award, leading to the recognition of our enduring model. Having withstood more than 160 years of changing fashions and trends, it has been named the winner in the Design category for 2021.
