$2,550per item

About

Model: PT42-BS3-DB with leather wrapped base Seat: Leather Seat color: Truffe Base: Sand cast brass Base finish: Brushed Brown Dimensions: 52 x 50 x 79 cm; Seat height 46 cm (W x D x H): 20.4 x 19.6 x 31.1 inch; Seat height 18.1 inch P. Tendercool chairs and stools Handmade, available to your order Belgians Pieter Compernol, Stephanie Grusenmeyer and Austrian Florian Gypser designed this Chair. You might notice similarities with Paul Kjaerholm's PK9 Tulip Chair. No wonder, he is one of our favorite designers. We were naturally inspired by our very own PT2 table base as well. The chair's base is sand-cast by hand in either brass or bronze by Italian Bronze-master Armando and his Team. Armando is hitting 80 and is Truly Old School: he even used to work for Salvador Dali!! He is the best possible, and still very much living proof that when we live our passions we stay young! A sand-cast chair-base in Olden Day Techniques, but still very effective. In contrast, the chair's shell is cutting-edge; high-tech: 3D-moulded plywood allows a super-thin, super-strong, yet very elastic shell. Like a bicycle saddle, this seat follows your every lateral move and the pre-curved back offers great comfort and support. Lead-time 12 weeks This chair model is available to order in either dining-table height, counter-height, and bar-height. There are stool and swivel version available Important notes  Three legs, not four or five Our chairs have only three legs, like all other three-legged chairs they need some getting used to. We naturally tested our chairs extensively and they are perfectly balanced and perfectly strong. However, we'd advise not to Stand on them, finding your balance standing-up might be challenging on 3-legged chairs. P. Tenderstools are chairs, not ladders. Brass or bronze base Our P. Tendercool chair bases are made from solid sand-cast Brass or Bronze. The chair-base has been cast, brushed and finished by hand. This is visible. Air-bubbles from the casting process, weld-marks or brush lines will be present: our chairs are Made by Hand, one by one. There might be minor height or angle differences between chairs...P. Tendercool chairs are, like all our creations, never computer-perfect, nor made by Robots. We do apply a neutral colored primer on the chair bases but your chair will 'patinate' over time. This oxidation process – while slowed down due to the applied primer - is natural, inherent to Brass and Bronze, and is indeed, intentional. Oxidation marks will never be considered a 'defect'. Scratches Brass or bronze are metals. Metals can scratch or cause scratches. We mounted protective patches on the chair, but when you move the chair try not to forget that floors generally do not like metal. You may want to opt for our handstitched leather socks in the same color as the seat. Our finishes withstand every-day use, but as cars, they are not 100% scratchproof. Leather We hand-pick our leathers from local tanneries and do love a natural look. We chose hides which show 'traces of the beast': some necklines and marks remain visible. We buff the leather for a soft natural look and apply an oil finish: We like the traces of age and usage, and compare this to the look of horse-saddles, weathered belts or really great leather shoes, worn for years. Antique-dealers call this 'patina' and our chairs will become witnesses of decades-long use. It is up to you to apply some neutral saddle oil or cream to maintain your chairs. All this to mention we do not 'Plastic-coat' our leather. Our chairs, as our tables, are never perfect, they look natural and will age with grace.    .
