Designed in 1960 and considered one of Kjærholm's masterpieces as well as a masterpiece among all 20th century chairs, the leather seat and back of this chair floats on three beautifully curved matte chrome-plated steel legs. Its Minimalist design belies an incredible comfort, with great lower back support.
This chair retains its original beautiful richly patinated dark brown leather.
The chair is stamped on the underside of the steel leg with the maker's mark of E. Kold Christiansen.
