The design of the new Schlaufenstuhl by Girsberger is simple yet impressive. As its name suggests, the chair comprises a closed fabric loop which is fitted on top of a sophisticated wire frame. The loop folds to create a seat, backrest and armrests. The two-tone fabric accentuates the loop design and lends the chair its playful character. The Schlaufenstuhl was conceived and designed by Speziell Design, a young design company from Offenbach. Sybille Fleckenstein, Jens Pohlmann and Thilo Schwer wanted to design a chair with a load-bearing fabric texture, similar to a director's chair. The result is an unconventional piece of furniture – something between a stool and a chair – which does not need a seat shell or thick padding, but which is nevertheless comfy and easy to handle. The fabric contains a thin layer of padding. The loop, which lends the chair its originality, can be completely dismantled.


The origins of the furniture manufacturer Girsberger go back to a woodturner’s workshop, which was founded as a family enterprise in Zurich in 1889.
