The craftsmanship, passion, and expertise that come together in this design are not only palpable, they will be felt for generations to come.

Sheru armchAIR

A beautiful reinvention of the shell chair

A minimal design offering maximum comfort. Sheru, meaning "shell" in Japanese, showcases beauty in design and excellence in craftsmanship. The ergonomic shape has been rethought from every angle, to create a new seating experience.

The Austrian design trio EOOS is the creative force behind Sheru. Together with CEO of Walter K., Markus Benz, the designers talk about the development of the new chair, which began by abandoning everything they knew about upholstery technology.

Lighter than air: the secret of Sheru

Invisible, yet palpable from the moment you take a seat: innovative chAIR technology transforms the experience of Sheru. Barely thicker than a yoga mat, the seat is not just superbly comfortable, it is breathable.

Sheru chAIR

The back and seat of the chair contain concealed openings, which allow cool air to circulate freely around the body. Bands in the seat, arranged in the shape of palm leaves, create a pleasantly springy sitting feeling.

Offering variety for every space

Chair or armchair?
Sheru is offered in two distinctive forms. Choose the minimalist silhouette of Sheru chAIR, or the perfectly defined contours of Sheru armchAIR - both with integrated chAIR technology for superb seating comfort.
Leather, fabric, or both?
Sheru can be uphostered in fabric, leather, or a combination of the two. Walter K. offers an extensive range of beautiful, natural materials to choose from, in an array of colors and finishes. All covers can be exchanged flexibly.
Wood or steel?
The frame of the chair is an ode to minimalism. The sleek and simple base and legs can be crafted in solid wood or (polished) steel, again in a choice of colors and finishes to perfectly suit your space.
