Concept C – Schalenstühle

Design: Jörg Bernauer Klöber offers a versatile range of armchairs, sofas and chairs for modern office environments. Concept C creates space for encounters, improves the quality of communication and offers areas for relaxation. The extensive programme is recommended for use in central areas and open-space offices, as well as in waiting areas, lounges, conference rooms, cafeterias and at the espresso bar.

With a uniform design for different applications, Concept C highlights the corporate culture. Concept C sofas and chairs create a space for upright and comfortable sitting. Generous proportions ensure a feeling of well-being and provide a comfortable distance between users. Concept C sofas with their high back create aesthetically and acoustically screened areas.Stools are quick to rearrange in order to accommodate a larger group or connect the sofas to create a corner.


The cubic sofa programme harmonises with the shell chairs and compact shell chairs for a uniform design quality. Concept C shell chairs styled with curves or straight lines to create places where it all happens.They are recommended for unconventional working practices and the straight-lined chairs can be linked to form rows.

Concept C compact shell chairs support the current flexible working practices. They harmonise with the shell chairs to form a clear aesthetic unit. This creates flowing transitions between various working practices in order to generate a diverse offering from a common creative vision.
