Gerhart and Brigitte

Brigger chairs were born in 1976 when Brigitte and Gerhart, an engineer/designer couple invented a chair that supported their backs like no other and fit right in with their existing furniture. Over time they figured out how to make furniture that fits your body and give the customer a choice of solid woods, high quality upholstery, and real workmanship. The basic seat provides ergonomic support for the whole body and can be scaled to fit any person. It is the basic seat component of innovative chairs, rockers, recliners, and sofas. A line of accessories completes the palette of comfort designs. Following the tradition of old-time furniture makers at Klein Design we use native hardwoods and build pieces one-by-one, in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The resulting products have proven to be beautiful and durable, besides being exquisitely comfortable. They have found many friends across the USA, and the world.
