Vintage Set of Eight Bordeaux Leather 412 Cab Chairs by Mario Bellini, 1977

About

Good-looking and intact original set of vintage 412 cab chairs in Bordeaux leather, designed by Mario Bellini and manufactured by Cassina, Italy, 1977. Perhaps the perfect modern chair, and certainly the first seating design to feature a free-standing leather structure, this design represents the results of years of experimental engineering toward lightness, comfort, and maximum simplicity in design; reiterating a perennial dogma of Italian design: simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. When you use these chairs you can't help but marvel at the strength, grace, and directness of the vision as realized in the forms. A slung backrest conforms to any sitter's proportions, and the gently bowed curves of the seat (saddle leather supported by a thin molded vinyl plate affixed to steel frame) allow for numerous seating postures, from relaxed and leaning back, to formal and upright. Very rare to find vintage examples in this color, in this condition, and even rarer to find eight as a full dining set, not several put together ex post facto, this set was acquired from the estate of the original owner.
