Passenger Chair

A modern take on the original safari chair, the Passenger Chair blends its timber joinery with subtle connection points throughout the frame.
Saddle leather offers forgiveness to the seat which will add character and warmth over time.
This timeless profile will suit both commercial and residential environments that require a dining chair with arms for further exit support. The arms were designed intentionally slightly lower to allow for location under most tables.
