The Cross Frame Chair by Bauhaus artist Max Bill has an X frame for increased strength in the seat and legs. This allows for an ultra thin and comfortable molded seat and back, all made of lacquered beech. Available in three different colors, this is a chair that fits many functions, be it as a matched set to the Max Bill folding table or paired with your existing table.

"Beauty of function" and "beauty as function" were two important themes to Max Bill (1908-1994), especially evident in this collection of furniture characterized by clarity of design, simplicity, logic and economical use of materials. Max Bill studied at the Bauhaus in 1927-28 under the tutelage of Albers, Moholy-Nagy, Klee and Kandinsky. His interest in industrial design grew with the economic boom after the war, and in the importance of the appearance of things, an influence which came from the impressive talent from America. This collection is produced by WB Form, the distributor arm of the furniture store Wohnbedarf for which Max Bill designed most of these pieces. Made in Germany and Switzerland.
