DESIGN: DIMITRI RIFFEL
The appearance of this adapted Eless version is cool and hip, not only because of its lower backrest, but also due to its filigree skid-base, designed in chrome-plated steel. The fully upholstered seating shell provides comfortable seating and the durable cover fabric is available in various color options. Eless s172 is the perfect stand-alone chair for waiting and consulting areas within private as well as public sectors.
