The Kite Highback Chair Deep is a compact and distinctive armchair designed by Nendo for Stellar Works. It is specifically designed for narrow spaces such as corridors and entrances, an enticing chair for passersby to rest in or to have a casual conversation. The distinctive barrel-shaped backrest is the star to which the seat is adjoined, a design less about sitting and more about leaning against a grand backrest. The chair takes up minimal space while offering to its occupants a bit of calm and security. The Kite Highback Chair Deep is a versatile chair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in lobbies, receptions and other lounging areas.
The chair can be upholstered in a large range of fabrics. Please make your selection in the Upholstery option 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 Kite Collection is a series of 4 armchairs available in two heights and depths.
