Tate Wood Chair
More than twenty years since the original design debuted, Cappellini is celebrating the Tate Wood chair by Jasper Morrison by offering new models which represent a complete renewal in terms of the look and finishes.
A fresh and versatile option, the Tate Wood chair is a part of a family which includes stackable chairs and stools of two different heights. With a high or low back rest, this chair features a shell made of ash plywood with a mahogany or oak veneer with a natural or stained white, wengé or black finish.
The base is available in different versions: four legs with a satined stainless steel finish or matte satined lacquer in the shades of white, mud, anthracite, pumpkin, brick, grass green, petrol and Prussian blue, with a sled base in satined stainless steel or matte varnished in white, anthracite or mud, and with 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.
