The design was developed together with KEBE’s skilled product development team, and the resulting chair features an organic design in molded cold cure foam with excellent sitting comfort.

Fredo upholstered chair. On swivel base and with steel legs. Computer model and rendering: Jacob Würtzen, 2012

Two versions, a swivel based and one with four legs, has been a feature of the design from the beginning, and both versions have their qualities, I think:
On the swivel base, the floating-in-the-air look and the rounded backside is quite accentuated.

On the four legged version, the front legs and the armrests form a more stable and springy statement?
