‘sharky’, was developed by german design house neuland. paster & geldmacher, for kristalia. the name derives from the ‘fins’ that couple the polyurethane seat to the base–which is produced in solid beech, european oak, or epoxy lacquered aluminium.


the seat is available in classic white, black, beige, terracotta, brown, olive green, and light blue. it can also be upholstered with padded high-quality kvadrat fabrics. ‘sharky’ was a recipient of the interior innovation award at imm cologne 2015.
