Merwyn by Sebastian Herkner for Wittmann
Updated: Dec 8, 2019
With Merwyn, Sebastian Herkner completed Wittmann´s task in perfection: Objective was to combine high seating comfort with an optical lightness, as well as to invoke Wittmann´s unique craftsmanship.
When a chair has to have a special, inviting character, Merwyn´s unique curved design fits the bill like no other. In time-honoured Wittmann tradition, this chair is perfectly proportioned, so that – with a pocket-sprung cushion – maximum comfort is achieved, while its smooth lines are attractive from every angle. The optional armrests lend the chair even more independence. The armrests and back are leather-covered, surrounding the seat in one elegant curve. Significant feature is the masterfully worked single line of piping, running around the seat.
Merwyn is a truly outstanding chair – working well as a stand-alone piece or next to a bureau or dressing table, and really coming into its own when several are used together in a mixed group with covering and piping in varying materials and colours. Bearing the unmistakable stamp of Sebastian Herkner, Merwyn adds a touch of levity to any interior design.
