The minimalist Patio chair by Konstantin Grcic
The Patio chair is a minimalist piece of furniture with a simple, geometrical shape and a versatile look. The chair was designed by Konstantin Grcic. It has a strong and solid construction and a very simple but elegant appearance. It was designed to be used in hotels and restaurants but also in private dining rooms. Its versatile design allows it to be used in a variety of different spaces but the shape restrains its functionality to the dining areas.
This sturdy chair features a seat shell made of natural, black leather attached and suspended in a stainless steel tube frame. The leather is commonly used for saddles, belts and horse tack. It’s thick and hard-wearing and this allowed the designer to use it for the seat shell without any other support. Even though the material doesn’t particularly express finesse, it has been worked with great precision by Italian craftsmen and the result is this delicately-shaped piece of furniture.
Moreover, the seat shell is able to adapt to the user’s body and provide support. The leather is strong but flexible and this makes it a particularly great material in this case. The Patio chair has an overall simple design and this makes it versatile. Also, it has an elegant look and a modern appearance. It comes in two colors, black and natural, both with matt-black anodized aluminum legs.
