Iconic Design Features

Each chair is meticulously crafted, featuring a seat and back composed of two bands of sleek black leather. This choice of material not only offers comfort but also adds a touch of sophistication to the minimalist design. The leather bands are stretched tautly across the frame, made from chrome-plated steel rod, which provides both strength and a gleaming contrast to the matte leather texture.
