Cab chair by Mario Bellini for Cassina 6 black


The iconic Cab chair designed in 1977 by Italian architect Mario Bellini. The construction of the Cab chair is completely unique and the design has been widely celebrated for durability and comfort. Here we offer an original and complete set of six Cab chairs, in the most popular black leather.

The Designer’s Inspiration A leather ‘skin’ is hand stitched over, and entirely encasing, a metal rod ‘skeleton’

Fabrication Steel rod frame, polyurethane padding. 16 pieces of cuoio (saddlery) leather individually cut and dyed then stitched together with exposed seams, black rubber ferrules.

Hidden Features The many manufacturing steps and techniques are discretely passed down from maker to maker at Cassina.

Design Consigned Stylist The ultimate 20th Century contemporary dining chair. Recognised around the world for its inimitable construction.
