Chair with armrests and steel frame, 4 legs. Beech wood seat and back (embossed finish).
The Hull seating family is characterized by a classic but original composition. The metal parts describe rounded shapes and combine with those in bent wood to offer maximum comfort. The overall design is harmonious and balanced and easily adapts to different contexts and situations. ”Harri Koskinen. Hull is a family of seats that communicates personality and sturdiness thanks to a frame in steel tube with a diameter of 30 mm. A collection that combines the solidity of metal with the elegance and compactness of beech, a material chosen for seat and backrest.
