Margarete Klöber, Polstergleich

Polstergleich owes its origin to the pioneering spirit of Margarete Klöber in the 1930s. Margarete Klöber founded her health chair factory in 1935 with the idea of bringing healthy sitting to the offices.

Margarete Klöber was a secretary and sat on an uncomfortable wooden stool. She thought, "There must be a better solution than this stool." And so she developed her first chair, with the "freedom to sit better". It combined the still young technology of bentwood processing with the comfort of an armchair. With it's sprung seat and back rest it was designed to simulate the comfort of an upholstered chair - upholstery was not common in the office at the time. This ingenious idea was an innovation in the working world at the time.
