Description

The super rare Airest 'No6' armchair (affectionately known as the 'Bahama Chair') is an early pan pacific masterpiece. Out-swept legs elevate a curvaceous, highly organic body to create one of the most memorable local offerings.

The design is a tribute to the lavish curves and sculptural forms of early organic modernism. It is a dangerously comfortable offering so proceed with caution - once you sit back and kick up those feet you'll find it hard to leave.

Note: This chair is one of only 6 we have seen in the last 10 years – yes it's very rare.
