“A new kind of chair, made entirely of saddle leather, often cloned today.” This is how Mario Bellini describes the best-selling Cab chair, 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-hide chair, inspired by the relationship between the skeleton and the skin. Its upholstery is made up of 21 parts in saddle leather that are individually die-cut and then undergo 22 processes by hand. 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. Modern, versatile, iconic, Cab furnishes the most prestigious hotels and luxury restaurants, executive board rooms and congress centers with a varied product line in a palette of colors.
