Tipo-MA/MAC / Four leg chair

Tipo-MA/MAC
Tipo-MA/MAC

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The success of the Tipo-MA/MAC is that its design and function are beautifully harmonized. Weighing 4.2 kg with mesh seat and back, the chairs are both easy to move and stack. The waterfall at the front seat is not only beautiful, but also comfortable. The Tipo has been efficiently designed providing the option of glides or casters, armrest and tablet on the common leg frame. The large tablet option can be used for both right and left handed. The horizontal rotation of the tablet allows for larger people to get in and out of the chair. All resin components are made from 100% recycled poly and the mesh is 100% recycled yarn from reclaimed PET bottles.
