The chair is a design classic and in excellent condition. Has been little used as it was in a spare room. Only up for sale as the seller is emigrating to Asia. To quote from the sales blurb from the company from which it was purchased...
"The Steelwood chair was designed by the progressive minds of the Bouroullec brothers, the steelwood chair is a radical combination of two very conventional materials: steel and wood. aimed at attaining an ornamental patina over years of use, the steelwood chair is intended to preserve the illusion of timeworn delicacy. after extensive technological research the steel forming process has been refined to accommodate the unique and intricate form, requiring nearly ten successive stamping stages in order to create the perfect curvature."
Well, if you like that sort of thing OK... but the chair is really simple and beautiful and very well made. If you log into the Made in Design website from where I originally purchased the chair and search for the chair using the title heading you will get more information on the chair. Currently retailing new at £457.
