Girsberger innovation in 2014 – G 125 wooden swivel chair

G 125 – Contemplating and reinterpreting the wooden swivel chair

Girsberger was founded in 1889 by Heinrich Girsberger. The Modell 111 was first created in 1907. This had an infinite height adjustment mechanism, which was patented in 1910.

It was with this Modell 111 wooden swivel chair that Girsberger began positioning itself as a chair specialist. Today, swivel chairs are no longer made from solid wood.
