or Call to Order

The Kobi chair is Patrick Norguet’s magnif­i­cent re-imag­in­ing of the iconic woven wire rod chair forms from the 1950s.

The Kobi chair’s seating basket” features criss­crossed soldered iron rods that are supported by an inno­v­a­tive cradle base composed of injec­tion-molded aluminum that envelops the seat. The seat, cradle frame, and legs are avail­able in five differ­ent enamel finish colors – black, textured white, coral red, aubergine, and cedar. Paired with the color finish seat and cradle, the chair’s aluminum legs can also be ordered in oak veneer. The Kobi chair is avail­able with or without seat/​back pads. Pads are avail­able in a range of Kvadrat textiles as well as leather and include the option of a single seat pad, a seat and back pad, or a fully uphol­stered seating basket.”
