Description

A lack of machinery and materials after WWII encouraged designers to create objects that were stripped back to their purest form.

The design reduced to its most simple form. What remains is a brief outline of a chair, with a sculpted semi circular shape and simple cigar shaped legs. The timeless combination of ply against steel leaves us with an organic, minimal chair to suit any modern environment.

Note:
/Price is per chair. We have 1 available in red
/ We are constantly rotating our stock and not all items are on display at once. Please email us if there is a specific piece you would like to view and we’ll make sure it’s in the gallery.
