different basic types, making it a versatile and functional collection suitable

The chair legs are slightly angled outwards for a solid base. This comfortable chair is also available with 4 slim tubular frame tube legs (black lacquered or chrome) or with a 4 star swivel foot.
The dimensions of the chair are: 59 centimeters wide, 54 centimeters deep and 82 centimeters high. The seat height is 46,5 centimeters and the depth 42 centimeters.
