SGD 1.00
Seat : Upholstered ( Fabric / Leather )

Dimensions : 810 x 550 x 550 mm 

A timeless design informed by exceptional constructive complexity, the iconic Barrel chair was created in 1937 by Frank Lloyd Wright, based on an original design dating from 1904. Epitomising the extraordinarily high standard of Cassina carpentry workmanship, a synonym for quality and excellence, this barrel-shaped armchair is composed of 37 parts, each fitting into the other with pinpoint precision. The base and the chair back are constructed from three pieces of solid wood, bent at a different angles. Each of the three pieces is then cut in two to counterbalance the tensions created during the steam-bending and the drying processes. The two parts are then placed back-to-back and glued together. The joints are all carved directly into the wood, all the details are hand-finished by Cassina’s carpenters. Barrel is also available in a version called Taliesin Model, approx. 10% wider, designed by the author of the Herbert Johnson’s house.

Finishing
· Natural cherry tree, walnut or black-dyed, half-matt and transparent lacquer, half-open pore.

· Body in black moulded thermoplastic material. Padding in polyurethane foam.
