Cab Chair

For the iconic Cab chair, fit is everything. Originally designed in 1977 by Mario Bellini, it was the first free-standing chair to be entirely cloaked in leather. The result of years of study and many a dextrous craftsperson, it adds a beautiful sculptural quality to contemporary dining rooms.
