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 padded and upholstered in leather or fabric. 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 seat and back of the chair are fully upholstered in fabric or leather whilst the legs are in solid walnut or oak wood in multiple finishes. Please refer to the fabrics and finishes guide for more information and make your selection from the upholstery category and wood finish in the Upholstery and Wood options above, indicating your chosen upholstery reference and wood finish 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 Utility Collection which also includes armchairs, chairs and other products.
