Stylish set of 6 cantilever dining chairs model T70/920 designed by Carlo Bartoli and manufactured by Tisettanta in Italy in 1971. The chairs have a sleek chrome-plated steel frame and comfortable seats made of thick cognac leather. The leather has this awesome patina from years of use, giving each chair its own unique character. The leather is nicely folded over the frame and visually stitched at the back and at the bottom its held together with metal springs under the seats, making them sturdy and flexible. What makes these chairs stand out is their minimalist design which is simple and iconic. At the back there is a flat steel stem that gently curves, giving you the perfect back support. And at the bottom, the stem is flattened and beautifully attached to the frame, giving it an unique look.
Kindly note that the listed price is per set of 6 chairs.
