“A new kind of chair, made entirely of saddle-hide, often cloned today.” This is how Mario Bellini describes the best-selling Cab chair-armchair, developed in the golden age of Italian design and today an iconic piece in the I Contemporanei collection. Cab is the world’s first free-standing saddle leather chair, inspired by the relationship between the skeleton and the skin. Its upholstery is made up of 22 parts in saddle leather. Only after a lengthy shaving procedure to thin the parts to be joined, are the cut parts stitched together. The upholstery is then hand-molded to the steel skeleton and closed with zippers, like a custom-tailored garment. Iconic, modern, versatile, the Cab stool furnishes the most prestigious hotels, luxury restaurants and lounge bars with a varied product line in a palette of colors.
