Our catalog of metal chairs
In SuperStudio we delight the industrial vintage beauty of metal chairs. In our catalog we include pieces inspired by iconic pieces of authors like Harry Bertoia, Jean Prouvé or Charles & Ray Eames. It is the case of the Bertoia chairs in different finishes, the Demiro Plywood chair and the Dron chair, respectively.
We also have models that recall the most famous creations of furniture firms of international prestige. Our collections Terek, Moskov or Greek are based on the designs of Jean and Xavier Pauchard for the French firm Tolix. And our Neo chair is the colorful version of the well known Navy chair produced by Emeco, originally designed to supply a sturdy chair, durable and practical for the naval Army of United States during World War II.

Wegner, but with a more sober and straight style, especially, with a lacquered aluminum structure, to enjoy outdoors, unlike the original made of wood.
