designed to suit the ‘stammtisch’ table, zurich-based designer alfredo häberli presents the stammplatz chair, his newest addition to the quodes family. informed by the traditional handmade wooden chairs used in the swiss alps, this seating object consists of three parts: the legs, seat and backrest. although simple at first sight, a closer look reveals the complete opposite: the edge of the seat is subtly slanted inwards, and the back and seat fit together seamlessly.

made of solid french oak with an oil finish, the stammplatz chair by alfredo häberli for quodes is also available with a cushion in kvadrat galaxy fabric that follows the shape of the seat.


‘the ‘stammplatz’ was designed to suit our ‘stammtisch,’ comments alfredo häberli. ‘inspired by the traditional wooden hand-made chairs used in the swiss alps, ‘stammplatz’ is split in three main parts: the legs, the seat and the backrest. the same subtle detail from the ‘stammtisch’ is visible on the chair’s seat. the edge is not simply vertical but changes all around, therefore lets the seat and backrest meet in a very direct matter. the angle of the seat’s edge, has been considerate to directly provide a perfectly comfortable angle for the backrest. the simple wooden construction brings extra warmth and comfort to the setting around the ‘stammtisch’.
