The choice of refinement and well being, the SMOKE chair is an invitation to take time for yourself. The refined structure of the Smoke chair emphasises the fine details and precision of the furniture makers art. The sleek and clean lines of the seamless mechanical steel showcase the precision of hand cut and welded joints. The steel frame and baked-paint mat finish proposes boldness as well as a visual lightness.

The cool rigidity of the metal complements the radiant warmth of the Honduran mahogany. Parallel wood panels on the backrest highlight the natural grain of the wood, contrasting rich light and dark hues and its moderate natural luster.

Subtle leather straps connect the cushion to the backrest and frame, showcasing the detailed workmanship from all angles. Lush upholstery with visible seams and tufting on the patinated leather are the finishing touches of the Smoke Chair for an elegant and refined style.
