Utility Chair U

The Utility Chair U is a comfortable and versatile chair designed by Neri&Hu for Stellar Works.  The design of the chair is inspired by a sense of utility, its industrial aesthetics recalling factory and school furniture with a dash of contemporary masculine sophistication.  The chair is very comfortable, with its seat and backrest both padded and upholstered in leather.  Details such as the sturdy solid wood legs, the buttons in the upholstered seat and the brass finish of the steel backrest support blend tradition with modernity and functionality with style.

The Utility Chair U is a versatile all-purpose chair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in restaurants and bars.  The chair is part of the Utility Collection which also includes armchairs, stools and other products. 

The seat and backrest of the chair is fully upholstered in fabric or leather whilst the legs are in solid walnut or ash wood in multiple finishes. Please refer to the fabrics and finishes guide for more information and make your selection of the wood type and fabric category in the options below, indicating the fabric reference and colour finish for the ash version in the "Note to Do Shop" section at the checkout. Please contact us if you have any further questions on options and finishes.
