With 100 years of business history RECARO represents the perfect combination of design, quality, and safety in the production of seats. On occasion of this anniversary, and for the first time, the luxury volume gives a comprehensive overview of the complete history of the long-established Stuttgart Company.

Numerous photos and graphics show the brand’s development over the decades as well as the special typology of the product range: car seat, child safety seat, airline seat. Conversations with the management, contemporary and former designers, and many other protagonists of the company history convey a fascinating overview of the varied and exciting RECARO history, which was always characterised by innovation, quality standards, and absolute customer orientation. And that is why in this volume dedicated RECARO users have their say as well: Porsche driver Guy Newmark, frequent flier Manfred Haverkamp and former child safety seat passenger Julia Uspelkat talk about the role RECARO played and still plays in their life.

The company characteristics – distinctiveness, excellence, consequence, openmindedness and creativity – are reflected in this comprehensive volume. Its special design makes it a piece of jewellery, in terms of content and as a wonderful book. This is in accordance with the RECARO approach: great design in harmony with perfect functionality.
