Set of four CAB armchairs from Mario Bellini for Cassina in Brown Leather.
The armchair has an enameled steel frame. The seat is padded with polyurethane foam. The saddle leather upholstery is zippered over the frame.
Mario Bellini designed the CAB chair in answer to deep questions regarding the exact nature of the semantic meaning of furniture. The chairs were conceived with the aim of helping to stretch the body, acting almost as an extension of the body, the frame is made of tubular steel over which a stitched leather cover has been stretched, this is then fixed to the frame and held in place by four zips. The CAB chair is now part of the permanent collection at the New York MoMA.
