The basic design idea behind the ST8 is the complete rethinking
of the archetypal timber chair from the inside out. This creative
process begins in the heart of the chair with the reinterpretation
of the defining supporting role of its classical frame construction.
If one now turns the finished chair on its head, the surprise is
“The ST8 is substantial, comfortable, light. The chair is easy to pick
up and move. Up to six chairs can be stacked on top of each other
without this stackability becoming the dominant visual feature.”

All the molded elements – the backrest, seat, and frame – are
formed in a press from several layers of thin cellulose sheet
and two outer layers of veneer before being worked in situ by a
five-axis milling machine. This internal production process puts
an end to both long, external delivery journeys and the basic notion
of dependency. In short: The entire chair can be completely
manufactured by HUSSL, in-house.
