Mario Bellini for Cassina, set of ten 'cab' dining chairs model 412, cognac and black leather, Italy, 1976.
Beautiful bicolor set of ten chairs designed by Mario Bellini and executed in red cognac and black leather. Conceptually, the chair was designed to become marked and shaped over time by its user. The leather skin fits like a glove over the steel skeleton fastened with four zippers. The chair's design boasts simplicity, yet the combination of the material and sharp lines coalesce to produce a powerful expression.
Mario Bellini (1935) is an internationally renowned Italian architect and designer. Born in Milan, Bellini earned his PhD in architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1959. After his graduation, Bellini started working as an architect, and as a consultant for the Italian electronics company Olivetti. Besides architecture and electronics, Bellini also dedicated his career to automotive and furniture design. He has designed numerous items for Vitra, Artemide, Kartell, Cassina and more. The iconic 1977 Cab Chair for Cassina is one of Bellini's most prominent designs. The appreciation of his outstanding work has been made clear with eight Compasso d'Oro design awards.
