range 230 skid-base chair
Minimal materials. Maximum transparency. Simple to use.
Design: Andreas Störiko
Wilkhahn’s range 230 is a new yardstick for multi-purpose rooms and informal communications areas. At the heart of range 230 lies the multipurpose chair with a design that is both coherent and innovative. The seat and backrest are made of strong plastic and the chair has a stylish, bright chrome-plated round steel rod skid base. The result is a piece of furniture that is lightweight, stable and with materials reduced to the max. The flexible design and colour-matched high-efficiency fabric covering, combined with the holes to keep your body cool at the back, make sitting on the chair both relaxing and comfortable.
The masterstroke: the seat and backrest, available in black, grey and white, are based on the interlocking rails principle. This feature ensures extremely compact, safe and form-fit stacking that is kind to seat covers. Due to the integrated design with just two materials, range 230 is ideal for restaurants, conference areas, lecture theatres, waiting rooms, customer-service areas or homes.
range 230 skid-base chairThe seat and back frames are made of very strong black, grey or white through-dyed plastic. The skid base consists of chrome-plated, robust steel tubing. Together, their sophisticated designs add up to a flexible but very stable structure. The seat and back are covered in colour-matched, transparent high-performance fabric.
The chair’s light weight allows easy form-fit stacking of up to 15 chairs on top of one another and even up to 25 with a stacking trolley. And only 20mm (3/4") per chair is added to the height of the stack. The edge to the backrest acts as a handle, side slots in the seat frame make the chairs easy to pull forward and remove from the stack.
Simplicity itself and available as an accessory for the skid-base chair is the automatic shot-blasted, matt chromium-plated, flat-profile steel connector. To use, just open out and insert the next chair – that's all there is to it.
Types with seat shells and upholstered covers are available should firmer cushioning be required. As a result, there’s more scope for colour combinations as well. These models are also stackable (to a maximum of ten) and optionally fitted with extra bumpers to protect the seat underneath.
Exclusively for black seat and back frames: The two-tone covers in silver-black and copper-black make it easier to coordinate different material and colour interior design concepts.
