Chair and armchair with enamelled steel frame. The seat is padded with polyurethane foam. Leather upholstery zippered over the frame, in diÂerent colours. The versions in pressed, pigmented leather are also available.
The head of the family for a collection of chairs bearing this name â including an armchair, a small seat and a couch â CAB was designed in answer to deep questions regarding the exact nature of the semantic meaning of furniture. The chairs were
conceived with the aim of helping to stretch the body, acting almost as an extension of the body, the frame is made of tubular steel over which a stitched leather cover has been stretched, this is then fixed to the frame and held in place by four zips. The chair is now part of the permanent collection at the New York MoMA.
