Once avantgarde, now a classic. In the sixties the FK bucket seat was laying down markers for a new formal language. In 1969 it was awarded the first federal style prize for »Good Shape« (»Gute Form«). Since then it has been accepted as an icon of design. Today it represents classically good design all over the world. With its unique shape, clear contours and perfect lines, its unmistakable appearance is absolutely timeless. The original stands on three legs, today there are versions with five, either on castors or gliders. Two heights of the back for sitting at a table are available. The Lounge Chair with lower seating height invites you to read, dream and relax.
