Description

A design that not only has been considered a classic of industrial design but provides for a unique sensation of calm, even in the middle of the day-to-day turmoil.

    This is a very well-made chair. Sturdy, and beautifully designed. The frame (I think it’s fiberglass) is very solid and durable. I’m really happy with the quality and especially the price.

  • love it!

    I’m a photographer and I wanted to use this chair design for a photoshoot but didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars in an original. I trusted MHD and was very satisfied, the chair looks so amazing it’s been featured in many on my photos! 100% recommended!
