This is a high quality reproduction from Homage.
Known simply as the ‘Colonial Chair’, the elegant simplicity of this predecessor has been carefully preserved. Indeed the lines of the ‘Colonial’s’ tilted seat and canted back, are strikingly similar to those of the Basculant Chair. Le Corbusier had the foresight to see the true beauty in this humble design, elevating it from rugged utilitarian basic, to functional art.
In this modern derivation, a chromed steel frame replaces the oak of the original, and leather seat and back replace light canvas. A variation uses cow hide, (called pony) instead of the leather; serving perhaps as an enigmatic reminder of the outdoorsy colonial lineage of this eminently refined heir.
The Chair is made from Chrome plated tubular steel frame with tiltable backrest. Upholstered with Aniline leather or cow hide skin.
