The Utility Highback Armchair is a comfortable and versatile armchair designed by Neri&Hu for Stellar Works. The design of the armchair is inspired by a sense of utility, its industrial aesthetics recalling factory and school furniture with a dash of contemporary masculine sophistication. The armchair 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 armrest and backrest support blend tradition with modernity and functionality with style. The Utility Highback Armchair is a versatile all-purpose armchair appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, such as in hotels and reception areas.
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 make your selection in the Upholstery and Wood Finishes options above, indicating your chosen upholstery 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 Utility Collection which also includes armchairs, chairs and other products.
