Rolf Benz 7800
A chair that looks like it is itself ‘sitting’? That sounds unusual – and it is. The Rolf Benz 7800 is a designer chair with a unique design, which made it a true classic. Joachim Nees, designer of the Rolf Benz made the chair look like an artistic sculpture. The sophisticated structure makes the chair very flexible and gives it a high level of comfort.

Besides the green appearance, the chair is sustainable as well. Indeed, the Vegetal is made of 100% reusable polyamide. A striking green appearance!
