The dining chair by Soda Designers puts a new slant on traditional deep-buttoned upholstery. The signature design element is the soft mat that seems to lie on the chair though in reality it is permanently connected to it. The designers deliberately reference familiar forms. The smooth, unquilted leatherwork is understated but elegant. Both models are available with or without arms. The armrests are certainly an attractive option, as the combination of leather upholstery and wood is superbly executed. For the chair legs there is a choice of leather covering, a variety of wood stains or standard RAL colours.
