BISTRO is clearly inspired by Thonet’s no.14, the world’s most popular café chair (since 1859). Designers call it the “chair of chairs”, not only for the fact that it was the first industrially produced chair, but also for its innovative construction which has created its own distinctive typology. BISTRO adopts the circular seat frame and curved legs (both made of beech wood), adding an injection moulded polypropylene backrest and soft seat cushion made in integral skin polyurethane foam. The chair is available in natural or stained black beech wood, with coloured backrests and seats in either black, white, caffe latte, caramel or terra brown.
