Born in Tom Dixon’s 80s London workshop the S Chair is the prequel to its sibling still produced in Italy by legendary furniture company Cappellini.
Re-engineered to take account of the latest developments in manufacturing technology, the original three-dimensional form is now moulded in an industrial hard/soft foam with a pure new wool cover; the instantly recognisable serpentine curves are now more comfortable and ergonomically active than ever.
It now sits proudly on its steering-wheel inspired cast iron base.
Existing in a multitude of historic versions in the permanent collections of Museums from the MOMA New York to the V&A London the exciting adventures of ‘S’ look set to continue into the distant future.
