G 125

Reinventing the wooden swivel chair – after a company history of 125 years.
Design: Mathias Seiler
G 125 is a reinterpretation of the traditional wooden swivel chair. It evokes the early days when Girsberger made a name for itself as a specialist for chairs with its height-adjustable piano stools. The key element is simplicity – the chair has just a few functions and options for adjustment. It is thus a counterweight to modern swivel chairs, whose functions and options are being continuously expanded, but which appeal less and less to our senses. A beautiful chair for the home office, as a conference chair, or for exclusive waiting areas.

Mesh-covered moulded wooden ring

The seat is made of either an upholstered seat board or a moulded wooden ring with transparent mesh covering, while the backrest is made of steam-moulded solid wood. The G 125 comes with either wooden feet or steel feet on castors.

Steam-moulded wood

A unique characteristic of the chair is its back made of steam-moulded wood. Its U-shaped seat and backrest functions as a flexible torsion rod and allows the seat and back to rock comfortably – without any sophisticated tilting mechanism.
