Corporate philosophy

For more than 80 years Klöber GmbH, with its head office in Owingen on the shores of Lake Constance, has focused on its core competence of designing, developing and manufacturing innovative office seating. Klöber employs state-of-the-art technology and craftsmanship of the highest standard to create seating solutions that are convincing in design, quality, ergonomics and function.What’s so special about the company is that designers, developers, constructors and master craftsmen work together as a team, from the initial idea through to large-scale production of a new product. Always with the aim of creating a balanced product that combines a long life cycle, ergonomic principles and innovative functions in an effective way. The deliberate decision not to pursue short-lived trends ensures that the seating created here is timeless in design, as well as remaining both functional and a source of pleasure for many years to come.


You see, Klöber firmly believes that long product life is one key aspect of good design.The design-oriented product portfolio includes seating solutions for standard workstations, management offices, conference rooms, lobbies, open space offices and communication zones. All Klöber products are “made in Germany” and reflect the company’s passion for comfortable, healthy sitting. Classic chairs in the marketplace and many products that have been awarded international design prizes demonstrate the success of the seating manufactured on the shores of Lake Constance.
