Chair or easy chair?
Its definition is debatable.
Its seating comfort isn’t.
This guy is just really cool.
Even if lui gives off a shamelessly casual impression, its covering makes it appropriate for any setting – and that’s how the designer Jacob Strobel views his piece. lui appears elegant and suave all at once. The key feature of its distinctive style is the comfortable seat shell. The seat of the lui chair nestles against the body: sculpted upholstery with ergonomic foam cushioning provides superior seating comfort. Our high-quality covers – in classic or full-grain leather, fabric – complete the delightful feel of this chair. You will love it – at the dining table or in your home office, paired with our smart standalone sol or the atelier desk, for example.
A chair with a sense of family.
If the lui chair with its handcrafted wooden base is an easy-going, well-grounded guy, then the swivel base lui chair is the elegant, but equally cool brother. Additional comfort is provided by an organically shaped, easy-action swivel base with a unique mechanism that automatically returns the chair to its original position after the user gets up. And there’s a third member of the team, very much one of the family, with a delightfully light-spirited character. The distinctive difference here is its steel wire frame. Precise lines give this design a dynamic sense of energy with robust strength. The lui chair cuts a first-class figure in the home office when it turns up as an office swivel chair.

- walnutMore information
Noble, dark and elegant: walnut.
Austria, Slovenia and Hungary are home to our walnut trees. The noble living grained wood has hues that range from light brown to black brown and sometimes show a red or purple sheen. Regular sunlight lightens the wood’s colour. Walnut is hard and maintains its shape – it is almost impossible to wear out the extremely resilient wood.
- cherryMore information
Intensive, precious and resilient: cherry.
Whether it comes from sustainable forests in Austria, Hungary or Romania: the deciduous wood from our cherry trees is perfect for producing premium solid wood furniture. It is highly resilient, close-grained and always reveals different facets of its beauty. This is because ist colour spectrum ranges from a yellowish or reddish brown through to an intense dark red brown. The colour darkens slightly when exposed to sunlight.
- oakMore information
Resilient, robust and firm: oak.
Our oak grows just a stone’s throw away in sustainably managed forests in Austria, Germany and Hungary. A greyish-yellow to yellowish-brown heartwood is characteristic of this firm and particularly resilient wood. It grows in clearly visible even tree rings and darkens slightly in sunlight. Oak owes its unique appearance to its strikingly broad wood rays, which, depending on the direction of the wood, become visible as typical, large, iridescent mirrors or as dark strokes.
- oak white oilMore information
Resilient, robust and finished by us: oak white oil.
Our oak grows here in Austria, as well as in forests in Germany and Hungary. A greyish-yellow to yellowy-brown heartwood is characteristic of this firm and particularly resilient wood. It grows in clearly-visible, even tree rings. We have finished the premium wood of our oak white oil surface with a special oil that prevents the natural darkening of the oak and makes it brighter. Oak owes its unique appearance to its strikingly broad wood rays, which, depending on the direction of the wood, become visible as typical, large, iridescent mirrors or as dark strokes.
- beech heartwoodMore information
Durable, lively and distinctive beech heartwood.
Our beech grows in the direct vicinity in sustainable forests in Austria and Germany. Its heartwood is hard and heavy and is characterised by a lively and distinctive wood look. Differences in colour, knots and small knotholes are typical. Natural coloured wood portions create a lively, distinctive grain pattern in the beech heartwood.
- beechMore information
Solid, firm, and yet subtle: beech.
Local sources are important to us. Our beech wood comes from sustainable European forests in Austria and Germany. The colour of the wood is aesthetically nuanced and varies between bright yellow and reddish brown. The colour darkens slightly when regularly exposed to sunlight. Beech wood is heavy and firm and its structure makes it particularly easy to process.
- alderMore information
Warm, red and charismatic: alder.
Our alder wood comes from sustainably managed forests in Hungary and Poland. It is characterised by a warm, red and golden colour that darkens slightly in the sunlight. Alder is a fast-growing medium-hard species of wood that is finely grained and is perfect for processing. And the best thing about it: its light colour variants and medullary rays make each piece of furniture made from alder unique.

Show your true colours. We will be glad to help.
We use the most reliable and sophisticated tools we can find: our hands.
Always a smile.
The covering – in leather, full-grain leather or fabric – stretches across the curved back like a garment, while on the inner side, hand-stitched indentations in the leather create attractive folds, giving the subtle impression of laughter lines. What appears to be casual and random is actually carefully cut from a single continuous piece leather, and meticulously crafted using traditional upholstery techniques: the high quality workmanship is unmistakable. The leather cover is stitched using a double flat-fell seam – familiar from classic denim jeans – which gives the chair a casual style that is also elegantly timeless.
The best of both worlds.
We combine the two things that make our work with solid wood even better: the latest technology and traditional Austrian craftsmanship.
Solid wood is healthy. But it’s addictive.
Be inspired by our interior designs and find out how TEAM 7 furniture can make all of your rooms more beautiful and natural.
Really good design is sustainable. Because it is timeless.
Good design is not just valuable, it’s also full of values.
TEAM 7 stands for first-class design with a clear philosophy. Design with a timeless quality that places a special emphasis on nature, instead of trying to restrain or subdue it.
"What I care about in design is having a deep understanding of the material, construction and function. The manual work forms the foundation, the technology provides the performance and nature creates the balance."
Wood meets the highest demands. Yet it is incredibly undemanding.
The most ingenious thing about wood: easy maintenance.
Wood naturally features unique self-cleaning properties. As a result only minimal effort is required on your part to keep your TEAM 7 furniture looking just as good in decades to come as it does today.
Loving nature comes naturally to us.
We don’t just take on orders. We also take on responsibility.
We think that our company should accept responsibility for its decisions. That’s why we stand 100% behind ours. Producing perfect solid wood for our customer is important to us – but the entire product process is also an integral part of this for us. That’s why we treat our partners, our employees and nature as they deserve to be treated: fairly.
We love wood.
We love what we do – as can be seen in every piece of finished furniture. This is because innovation and a pioneering spirit are our innermost aspirations. We know everything about our forests and about wood as a material. We treat wood with respect in the production of our furniture, combining innovative technology with traditional craftsmanship.
