The Blend Chair U is an elegantly minimalist chair designed by Nendo for Stellar Works. A three-legged chair with three crossbars was the base design, but as two of the crossbars melt away in the middle, the bars, initially tasked with horizontally connecting the legs, instead turn perpendicular to support the seat and a leg. A lone crossbar remains, acting as a footrest. This is a highly distinctive and sculptural chair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in minimalist spaces.
The chair has a frame in powder coated steel with a seat fully upholstered in fabric or leather. Please refer to the Materials and Finishes Guide for more information on materials and make your selection of fabric category in the Upholstery options above, indicating the fabric reference in the "Note to Do Shop" section at the checkout. Please contact us if you have any further questions on options and finishes.
The chair is part of the Blend Collection which includes 5 variations of the stool, including short stools, those with a leg seemingly extended up into a backrest, and those with upholstered seats.
