The Kassel based design studio Lepper Schmidt Sommerlade has developed a shapely and richly varied wooden chair programme for Thonet. In the process they harmonised classic Thonet material quality with defined functionality and thus developed a resilient four-legged solid wood chair, which can be used in canteens and restaurants as well as in churches, rest homes, hospitals and private dining rooms.

Variable, practical, stackable: the solid wood chair Programme 480, made from beech, possesses a sleek harmonically proportioned and ergonomic shape. Together the seat, back and armrest work to provide comfortable and secure sitting. The upholstered seat - also available with waterproof film protection - is available with leather or fabric covers. The back is available in moulded plywood or partially upholstered moulded plywood. The 480 is available with or without armrests and is also stackable, specialised stacking protection guards the wood and upholstering from any damage.

Lepper Schmidt Sommerlade The design studio based in Kassel is active in the area of contract furniture development in particular. One of its trademarks is the fusion of formal and constructive competencies. Open projects with architects, graphic designers and artists act in inspirational interplay with the creation of serial products. The studio has claimed numerous design awards.

The team has already worked with Thonet to develop the A 1700 table system and the S 840 contract chair programme.
