With this design Ulrich Böhme continues the tradition of Thonet. In its type and form, the S 826 is a reinterpretation of the classic bentwood rocking chair no. 1 from 1860; in its material it is oriented towards the tubular steel furniture.
Frame chrome-plated tubular steel, seat shell made of moulded plywood with upholstered cold foam cushions, covered with leather or fabric. Pillow in cover material and colour included.
