Cross Frame Chair
The Cross Frame Chair was designed in 1952 and has been produced ever since (since 1999 as a re-edition). The chair showcases Bill’s skills as a product designer and has received several prizes, among others ‘die gute form’ (1950s) by the Swiss Werkbund. The cross-frame leg construction was invented by Bill. It supports the seat in the centre and gives the chair the greatest possible structural stability. In terms of form, the contrast between the slim seat and the sturdy frame accentuates the chair’s technical construction, giving it a powerful and sculptural expression. And, last but not least, the chair is extremely comfortable.
