Design in the highest perfection
The H106 chair has a unique design that is the synthesis of the philosophy of its creator. Designed in 1967 and made of rare Afromosia wood, the chair meets all the criteria for a perfect piece of furniture.
Its compositional elements - proportions and scales, rhythms and subdivisions, textures and colors - are balanced and fully correspond to the values of their designer. This distinguishes the model from all other designs of communist Poland.
It is not easy to find such a refined piece of furniture among the worldwide design classics that has all the characteristics of an ideal chair: lightness, strength and comfort.
Design from an unknown, anonymous world that has remained hidden behind the Iron Curtain for decades.
An icon that has proven itself.
The design H106 fascinates with its organic shape and its even lines - that's why it was called "Spider". The extraordinary story of the H106 model testifies to a design classic that was way ahead of its time.
It had to wait almost 50 years to be discovered and appreciated. Based on the only existing prototype from 1967, we have built a chair that complies with the original and meets the needs of today's users.
Afromosia - timeless uniqueness.
The robust and at the same time light type of wood withstands the toughest demands and intensive use. Edmund Homa made these qualities possible by choosing Afromosia as a working material. As a result, the only prototype has survived since 1967, despite everyday use.
Today, 50 years later, we are reviving the H106 chair - using the same type of wood. In this way, not only does the uniqueness of the material come into its own, but we also pay homage to the outstanding instinct of its designer.
Comfort and strength.
The openwork, ergonomic and streamlined design creates a solid structure that is perfectly adapted to the human body shape. The soft seat, upholstered with elegant, high-quality natural leather, fills the wooden frame exactly and crowns the masterpiece.
Tradition meets future.
What was impossible 50 years ago is becoming reality before our eyes: the H106 chair is mass-produced using modern technologies and passionate craftsmanship. After the preliminary mechanical work, the careful and precise manual work follows to ensure the original shape - true to the vision of your designer.
Then all parts are put together and finished with high-quality wood oil, so that a first-class matt surface is created. No screws, no metal parts - the H106 chair stands for simplicity and natural perfection.
