Set of six original 1980’s cab 412 by Mario Bellini in very good condition.
A set of six Italian design icons in black saddle leather, the CAB 412 chair by Mario Bellini for Cassina is up for sale.
When first produced in 1977, the CAB was the first chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how human skin fits over our skeleton.
The leather upholstery is constructed from sixteen pieces of saddle leather, which are individually die-cut and sewn together. The leather is then zippered over the tubular steel frame and the polyurethane foam padded seat.
The chair is part of the permanent collection at the New York MoMA.
It is perfect for the dining room, office, or as a side chair.
Overall it’s a design with elegance and understatement, very comfortable to sit in, while still lightweight.
These chairs will last a lifetime. In very good vintage condition with hardly any wear.
Each chair is labelled at the bottom, Cassina and Cassina U-8.
