Cab Lounge Chair + Cab Settee
Unlike so many designers that have celebrated tubular steel as part of the object’s aesthetic – think Le Corbusier, Jeanneret, and Perriand’s iconic lounge seating from the late 1920s or Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair from 1925 – Bellini used tubular steel to create the unseen “skeleton” for his chair over which he has stretched a tightly fitting cover in thick saddle leather that engulfs the legs, seat, and back. The cover fits over this tubular steel frame and is opened or closed through the addition of zippers on the leather surrounding each of its legs.
The thickness of the saddle leather gently “gives” with pressure from the sitter. This creates a remarkably organic aesthetic that celebrates the leather itself and provides a subtle, engaging difference between individual chairs within a group of Cab seating. The exaggerated stitching along the perimeter of the cover creates the illusion that the leather was sewn directly onto the chair’s form. The Cab lounge series includes the Cab lounge chair as well as the Cab settee – each features more generous proportions than its Cab dining chair counterparts as well as the addition of padding to its seat cushion and back.
Noted here are the Cab lounge chair and settee is available in sixteen different saddle leather colors. Please contact CONTEXT at 800.886.0867 to review these options along with pricing.
