Local authority Owingen

The distinguished community hall in Owingen town hall, home to meetings of the local council, received new Klöber chairs as part of its refurnishing. Following extensive chair testing performed by members of the local council, they decided to go with the Klöber Ciello model with a high back, as it perfectly satisfied their requirements for a practical chair that is both comfortable and stackable.

The selection, a Klöber Ciello upholstered in a discrete fabric colour, is an excellent fit for a community hall whose atmosphere is dominated by wood.

Since the community hall was furnished with Ciello chairs, feedback from local council members has been entirely positive.

Klöber chairs are also being used in the offices and waiting areas in the hallways. Here, Mera chairs in the Network swivel chair and visitor chair models have been chosen that offer impressive comfort and colours that go well with their surroundings.


Owingen is a community in the Lake Constance district (Bodenseekreis) with a population of 4,300. Klöber has made Owingen the focal point of every area of the company since 2007. The local council purchases its chairs locally, from Klöber, whenever possible.
