These chairs are part of an office furnishing series manufactuered by Kill international, designed by Jørgen Kastholm in the 1970s.
The chairs are covered in a caramel-brown mohair fabric. Seat and backrest are screwed to a brushed polished steel frame.
These chairs were only a few month in production. They are made in an outstanding quality where the details speak for themselves. Jørgen Kastholm favored a functionalist approach and a minimalist aesthetic, always aimed at simplicity and timelessness. During it’s heyday, Kill International was one of Germany’s most important furniture manufacturers, influencing an entire future generation of architects and furniture designers. The circumstances of the company’s eventual closing are unknown, but the surviving work has become highly collectible.

The chairs and also the additional offered Kill International furniture are part of an office furnishing bought in the late 1960s by a Berlin architect.
