The chair has been recreated following the original 1937 design. The distance from the seat to the floor has been increased to reflect the growth in stature we have experienced since 1937. The chair is hand crafted using solid rattan cane. The bindings and the soft seat are hand-woven of lazio ( a strong and very flexible natural flat fiber). When combined with a foam filled upholstered seat cushion, the result is the ultimate in seating comfort.
