Kartell Comback Wooden legs Chair by Patricia Urquiola.
- Kartell once again has fun revisiting a great classic and giving a new look to the Windsor chair.
- A return to the glorious Anglo-Saxon past of England in the XVIIIth century for a “Comb Back” version with a matte frame featuring a backrest consisting of seven “teeth” which spread out towards the lumbar region where they meet a reinforced hexagonal rim with slim shafts radiating down to join the seat.
- A goodly size, this single mould chair embodies functionality and ergonomics well-freighted with sentiment and memories.
- The use of plastic and the pale shades available give a touch of lightness and the contemporary to the Comback chair.
