Help identify this chair

Chair Identification: Can you help me identify this chair?

I remember it being at Design Within Reach maybe 5 or 6 years ago (because I tried to buy it and the guy said they stopped selling it, so I asked if I could buy the one on the showroom floor, and he said it was sold, and he tried selling me a different chair).

I hadn't seen another picture of it until it popped up on the image for this show on Netflix.

I don't remember a lot about it, other than I think the designer was Dutch. Maybe German? I could be off.

It looks like a copy of the Moroso Take A Line For A Walk by Alfredo Häberli. It looks like it has different legs and a height handle, though. Also other images from the show show the chair much shorter than other wing backs (though that could be due to photoshop).

Can you tell us more about the height of the chair you want?

I think the Haberli chair is probably it - it definitely wasn't as short as it was in the Starz picture (and it didn't have the pad in the seat). The pictures on the Moroso site show it with with the rotating base and the fixed legs, and with a ottoman - that started setting off a lot bells.

Thank you!

Oops, sorry for the link. Glad I could help.

(Probably for my own use, since I'm sure I'll forget this - I found the Design Within Reach reference from 2005 - it was the Gerard Van Den Berg "Don" chair that I remembered)
