Shanghai | Dining Chair
The Shanghai Chair is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese Horseshoe Chair. It can be said that the design goes more than 700 years back as the inspiration for the armrest was found in a chair dating back to the Yuan Dynasty, a period where Marco Polo was still in China.
The Shanghai Chair features a steam bent solid ash wood frame and a seat of paper cord or leather. The back and the armrest play a central role in the chair’s construction, giving it an iconic shape and firm support. The high back provides comfortable support and the armrest effortlessly surrounds the body of the chair.
