With the Passenger dining chair, residential and commercial furniture designer – and creative director of New Zealand brand Resident – Simon James has applied a contemporary eye to the 1930s Safari chair.
Constructed with a timber joinery (or post and beam) technique, the design utilizes discreet connection points throughout the frame, offering a reliable stability.
A supple saddle-leather sling is forgiving and will take on authentic characteristics and warmth over time and use. The structured arms support an easy entrance and exit and are positioned slightly lower than standard to allow for the seat to be tucked under most tables.
The Passenger chair’s timeless and uncomplicated profile and quality craftsmanship mean it can be easily incorporated in both residential and commercial settings.
Made from solid oak and oak veneer, the chair is available in two wood finishes (Natural and Black) and two leathers (Mustang and Black), which can be mixed and matched to create a uniform or contrasting appearance.
