Tate Color Chair
More than 20 years since the original version, this family of seats designed by Jasper Morrison now welcomes the Tate Color chair that comes in an array of stackable chairs and stools of two different heights, with a high or low backrest, and is made of aniline-stained ash plywood in white, mud, anthracite, pumpkin, brick, grass green, petrol, and Prussian blue.
The base of the Tate Color chairs is available in a wide range of options: four legs with a satined stainless steel finish or matte satined lacquer, with a sled base in satined stainless steel or matte varnished in white, anthracite or mud, and five polished chrome spokes, with feet or castors. The four-legged version in stainless steel can also be equipped with a reclinable table in thick black laminate.
Other versions include Tate Wood, a collection of oak and mahogany veneered chairs and stools, as well as Tate Soft, a collection of upholstered chairs and stools.
