freifrau | ona side chair | steel frame black | harald 3 - 242
Dimensions: 62 x 59 x 80cm high (seat height 46cm)
Material: frame: black steel | upholstery: harald 3 colour 242
A round seat cushion, a curved backrest, four slim feet - Ona is reduced to the essentials. The soft, all-round piping that reinforces the seam between the two shells of the backrest is characteristic. A little more elegant and less casual - that is what the designer Sebastian Herkner answers when you ask him what makes his design stand out from the other Freifrau models. Ona hugs warmly and still lets his owner maintain his demeanor. This chair made of high-quality materials is available in several versions and therefore versatile.

What started back in 2012 as a one-man show has now, in little more than a decade, become an established European design brand: Freifrau Manufaktur. Operating from Lemgo, a small town in Westphalia, Germany, this exclusive manufacturer of seating furniture is characterised by the highest possible levels of comfort, lovingly-rendered details, and exacting quality and sustainability standards.
When, in 2012, trained carpenter Hansjörg Helweg decided to resign from his job, he had a clear vision in his mind – and set up Freifrau, a brand for seating furniture which, right from its beginnings, has always been different.
Freifrau furniture is elegant, stylish, and, true to the meaning of its name in German (literally ‘free woman’), often decidedly feminine. That’s why the various collections are called by female forenames – that, and because the names give them a personality.
A favourite here at top3 by design, The Leya series, introduced as a single model and then developed into a teeming collection of chairs, armchairs, benches, barstools, rocking and swinging chairs, has proven to be a real milestone on Freifrau’s journey. Supreme quality and comfort and unmistakable style.
Designed seating, and something personal, too, that´s what Freifrau stands for: “We have the great fortune of working with an upholsterer in the region,” says Hansjörg Helweg, “where we can easily carry out quality checks on fabrics.” This enables Freifrau to retain its exceptionally high standards for leather and textile coverings while also allowing customers to personalise their pieces with their own choice of fabric. Freifrau products only ever ‘wear’ the finest apparel!
Birgit Hoffmann, Creative Director at Freifrau from day one, working with Christoph Kahleyss, with whom she runs a design bureau, is the woman behind the Amelie and Leya lines, as well as several other Freifrau products. Another part of her role is to manage cooperation with new designers as they help the brand to expand its product range in an organic, authentic way.
Freifrau's stable of designers includes world-renowned names such as Sebastian Herkner (Ona and Theia), and Hanne Willmann (Nana)

Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim. He studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design), already focusing during his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details.
Whilst still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, colours, structures and textures. Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as ClassiCon, Very Wood by Gervasoni, Moroso, Sancal, La Chance and Rosenthal, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums. Since 2007 he has taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as visiting lecturer. His designs have received multiple prizes, for example the 2011 German Design Award in the Newcomer category.
