The Softshell Chair with swivel base belongs to the same collection as the Softshell chair with 4 legs. It has a smooth appearance which gives conviviality and serenity to it. It also ensures a very comfortable seat, unexpected at first sight: thanks to the vertical ribs inserted in the back shell, the Softshell Chair allows its user to sit comfortably for a long time.
 
The Softshell Chair with swivel base is available with 2 bases: a 4-star base with glides for carpet or hard floors, and a 5-star base with suspension and wheels. The 2 bases are available in basic dark powder-coated aluminium or in polished aluminium.
 
Base colour  Aluminium powder-coated in basic dark or with polished finish.
Shell  Fibreglass-reinforced polyamide. Armrests are integrated in the seat shell.
Upholstery  Polyurethane foam. Fabric or leather.
