Award-winning at the start of imm cologne 2019: Rolf Benz 629 wins ICONIC AWARD: Innovative Interior 2019

13/01/19 / Cologne / Nagold. The Rolf Benz 629 dining range is already one of the successful débutantes of the season. Presented for the first time at the autumn in-house trade fair 2018, the combination of chair and bench seat was awarded the “ICONIC AWARD 2019: Innovative Interior” by the German Design Council. The award will be presented on 13th January 2019 at imm cologne (14th to 20th January) while the accompanying exhibition at the Kölnischer Kunstverein can be seen until 20th January.

The harmonious dining chair furniture was selected by an expert jury consisting of renowned design experts. The range bears the same signature as the – also award-winning – Rolf Benz 562 club chair from 2017: both designs originate from Swiss designer This Weber.

The bench seat and chair have a striking and warm style that offers an alternative to today’s somewhat severe forms. Inspired by midcentury design, the bench seat and chair are absolutely contemporary with their organic shells and splayed legs: dining benches are a big lifestyle topic. The Rolf Benz 629 bench seat is the result of many years of design evolution. Rock solid and stable, the elegant and light dining bench dispenses with a visible frame.

The legs on the chair and bench seat are available in three solid wood versions and two varnished metal versions. The chair is also available as a swivel version. Additionally, you can personalise the covers on the dining furniture. They are available in Uni or in Mix & Match, with the backrest shell in leather and the seat in fabric.

To match these new chairs and bench seat, Rolf Benz is presenting two new dining tables, the Rolf Benz 939 and Rolf Benz 967, thus creating a distinctive product family whose personalities maintain their independence.
