This piece calls to mind a 1930's racing car - both to look at and to sit in. The steep rake of the seat is due to the wedge-shaped base. All visible construction is steel tubing. Base is available in standard black laquered beech. Additional base options include a variety of colors, natural oak, or polished aluminum. An integrated headrest with height adjustment is optional. Available in leather only. Manufactured by de Sede in Switzerland. Price includes delivery to the USA.
