Bac One Chair
Bac one emerges as a natural evolution of the Bac line; without armrests, it presents even greater simplicity while maintaining a harmonious balance of form and function. The chairs’ seats have a frame made of solid ash wood and are available in a bleached, oak-stained, black-stained, wengé-stained, or Shanghai blue aniline stained finish. The seat is ash, with the same finish as the frame. It is also possible to upholster the front of the ash seat with leather or fabric from Cappellini’s collection.
