    In Storage

This office chair was made in Germany. German firms have led the world in making ecological considerations a primary objective in the design of their products. The parts used in this chair are 95% recyclable and are clipped, screwed or bolted together rather than joined with adhesives. This allows parts to be repaired and replaced, thereby extending the life of the chair.
