Product Description

A handmade re-edition of the Office Armchair with cross legs (X leg) designed for buildings in Chandigarh in the 1960s. Symmetric ‘X’ or ‘cross’ units on either side form a unified armrest and leg assembly. The curved backrest is freestanding and bowed. The X legged version of the Office Chair was not made in very large quantities; the V legged version was produced in far larger numbers in the prolific period between the mid 1950s to mid 1970s.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of three wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain and Z4 Walnut.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of sealer.

For the Z4 Walnut finish, a proprietary one, the wood is hand-stained with a water-based walnut stain and then a coat of sealer is hand-applied.

Wood Finish - Natural Teak / Dark Stain / Z4 Walnut
