Pair of Mario Bellini for Cassina "Cab 414" Lounge Chairs, Signed, circa 1980s

About

A beautiful pair of Mario Bellini Cab lounge chairs, Model #414, in exemplary condition, signed Cassina, designed in the 1970s. These fine examples of the cab line by Mario Bellini for Cassina are Classic staples for luxury interior designers and collectors alike. The leather color on this pair of Cab model 414 lounge chairs is a deep rich black color. Signed underneath with Cassina embossing to the leather and a paper Cassina label. Mario Bellini described the 1970s bestselling design for the Cab collection as “This was a new kind of chair, constructed totally out of leather, much cloned since then.” and is now a signature piece in Cassina’s Contemporanei collection. Cab was the first-ever chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how our skin fits over our skeleton. The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. They then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the chair’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening as in a bespoke tailored garment. These Cab 414 club armchairs would work great in a Mid-Century Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Postmodern room. Also consider mixing it up in a traditional, classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Being highly durable, this set of arm chairs would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Condition: Excellent showroom ready condition with only very light, minimal patina on the thick, gorgeous saddle leather. Ready to be used and enjoyed immediately. Measurements: H 30.75" x W 26.75" x D 23.5" Seat height 17" Seat depth 19" Arm height 23.5".
