The Berlin Chair designed by Meinhard von Gerkan for the furniture maker Walter Knoll in 1975  was recently re-launched at the Milan Furniture Fair - Salone Internazionale del Mobile!

Precisely forty years after its introduction, the Berlin Chair was re-launched for the VIP lounge of Berlin Tegel Airport. Quote from the product description: “Succinct, logical, authentic – the Berlin Chair – a masterpiece of modern design. Inspired by the functionalism and logic of Scandinavian design, the chair is to this day a prime example of timeless aesthetic appeal. Highly-polished steel supports supple leather. Expensively finished, with comfortable soft padding. The intrinsic value of the design lies in the clear lines, the materials, the unself-conscious harmony, and the special craft quality. And not least the precision – art that leaves nothing to chance. Slower, quieter, longer lasting. Timeless and familiar in the best sense. For discerning connoisseurship and orientation in the material world.”
