CASSINA ‘CAB 413’ LEATHER ARMCHAIRS | $895 & 995 The Cab 413 armchair was designed by Mario Bellini in 1977 and made in Italy by Cassina. The Cassina website describes them this way: “Cab was the first-ever chair to feature a free-standing leather structure, inspired by how our skin fits over our skeleton. The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. Individually die-cut, they then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the chair’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening, as in a bespoke tailored garment.” We are offering two chairs in a natural finish that has deepened as they’ve aged. One chair is in nearly perfect condition and the other has some patina – mostly darker areas of leather – that reflects normal use.
