The Tram Chair is a result of cooperation with Thomas Feichtner, a renowned Vienna based product designer. Feichtner was inspired by the bentwood manufacturing process which has been used for over 150 years. The Tram chair was thus manufactured from technologically formed wood, while the other elements were formed manually in a traditional bentwood manner. The combination of the two methods in one product has created a bridge between these two technologies.
The Tram Chair is unique due to its design as well. The back rest of the seat functions as the connection of the legs, which means that no other supports are needed. Tram is supplied both with and without arm rests, in plain as well as upholstered version with a number of different materials available.
Although the Tram Chair was planned down to the last detail, finding its name was a coincidence. Due to the fact that the chair resembles the fiberglass seats in Czech trams, it became popular under a funny name, Tram. The innovation retained this name.
The Tram Chair was introduced at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture fair in Milan in 2013.
