Exclusive design. Extreme comfort. Classy finish. The upholstered furniture range Asienta stands apart for its distinctive re-interpretation of traditional forms. Precision combined with a sense of visual softness, straight lines and organic curves, prestigious looking quality and contemporary shapes immediately convey an especially exclusive appeal. The superbly stylish and subtly organically shaped structure creates elegant contours that appear to be encased in the upholstery. The sofas and chairs resemble lightweight cubes and their plump cushioning suggests excellent comfort in different sitting positions. Square and rectangular side tables are made to match the chairs, sofas, and benches.

  • The chair and sofa range blend prestigious appeal with exceptional design and comfort that's second to none. The stylish aluminium frame with curved cross sections and organic transition points form the characteristic contour around which cushioning of the cube-shaped seat body appears to envelop itself. The upholstery is thin and flat on the outside, with a defined curve on the inside. It looks soft, but the upholstery is firm where it's required and elastic where it's welcome. Support is provided and ensures permanent seating comfort. With their classy covers, the cubes look as if they're wrapped in one piece of fabric. They form an exciting interpretation of traditional shapes, combined with clear precision and a relaxed appeal.

  • High-quality materials and perfect craftsmanship can be enjoyed every day and guarantee the product will last a long time. Matching covers, surface, and low tables allow Asienta to suggest a feeling of relaxation and calm in diverse room and design concepts. These include reception areas, executive offices, lobbies, exclusive clubs, or homes. The range offers stand-alone chairs that are very compact (70cm) or in normal widths (78cm), as well as two- and three-seater sofas (150cm/218cm) and upholstered benches. The seating heights of 44cm and the firm, ergonomically supporting upholstery make getting up easier, an important aspect. There is a choice of high-quality textiles and exclusive leather for the covers to suit diverse requirements. Matching side tables complement the range.

  • First-class materials and perfect craftsmanship can be enjoyed every day and guarantee the product will last a long time. The covered and specially upholstered insides of the armrests and backrests and the tightly upholstered seat itself are examples of upholstery at its best. Every Asienta is customized and hand-made and this offers the client an unlimited choice of fabrics, leathers and metal finishes. Because every stage of construction is conducted by hand, by a trained professional, Asienta offers first class quality, both in design and manufacture. Asienta is another brilliant example of German design and manufacture at its finest.

  • The extremely tough, four-legged structure makes large spans possible and is extremely stable on all kinds of floors. The chairs and sofas have ergonomically supporting upholstery that make getting up easier, an important aspect. Premium quality cushioning and upholstery results in superior user comfort whilst at the same time the organic profile and concealed fixings mean there is no possibility of any harm to the user. The Asienta upholstered chairs and upholstered benches with and without backrests are certified with the GS-Mark which stands for 'tested security' and is often translated as 'German security'. The product range also complies with the DIN EN 16139-L1 and ANSI/BIFMA x 5.4 standards.

    Timeless aesthetics, and constant quality. Durability is Asienta's number one priority. The timeless form has what it takes for the Asienta range to become a classic. The sophisticated and innovative upholstery and internal structure guarantees consistently superb seating comfort. The chair's materials and craftsmanship are designed to last and last. The materials comply with Wilkhahn's product development requirements. The durability of the high-quality materials, the innovative comfort and the clear, distinct design ensure the chair can be used for decades.
