This office chair was designed by Delta-Design, which included Michael Conrad, Henner Werner, Detlef Unger and Dieter Raffler in 1968.

The seat is made of fiberglass upholstered with high-quality black natural leather. The chair has an ergonomic shape. Additionally, the aluminum armrests and the soft leather of the seat provide high comfort during use. It is a classic among Mid Century Modern office chairs.
In 1907, Friedrich Hahne and Christian Wilkening established a chair factory in Eimbeckhausen near Hanover. The name of both founders was later used to create the company name Wilk-hahn. In the 1950s, Wilkhahn pioneered German industrial design, experimented with new materials and developed his own, distinct design language. This resulted in purist pieces of furniture, the form of which was developed in strict accordance with the function. Some of them have gone down in the history of design. Worldwide, Wilkhahn is synonymous with design made in Germany. About 60 years ago, the company set itself the goal of value in use, design durability and quality. Milestones such as the classic FS-Line chair (1980), the Confair folding conference table (1994), the Modus office chair (1994) and the Aline chair (2004) have shaped the way offices have evolved. Wilkhahn also sets new standards in terms of its ecological approach. As a winner of the German environmental award, the company has worked with architects Frei Otto and Thomas Herzog and has been actively practicing environmental responsibility for over 20 years.
