The Café Chair is a modern translation of the traditional café chair. This fully wooden chair has a removable, 3D-knitted and semi-transparent back cover that gives the seat a highly individual character while offering exceptional comfort.

This reinterpretation of the classic café chair was particularly convincing through the integration of knitting technology. The material combination of wood with a knitted cover creates a harmonious whole. A very beautiful composition that offers ultimate seating comfort.
