Design by Jorge Pensi, 1988.
Barcelona architect and industrial designer Jorge Pensi brings his forward-looking aesthetic to KnollStudio with the Toledo Chair. An instant classic, the chair is featured in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art. The Toledo Chair is a fluid combination of cast-aluminum back and seat sections joined by tubular aluminum arms and legs. Aluminum makes it versatile in application; it is appropriate for use both indoors and out.
The Toledo Stacking Chair is Greenguard certified and is 100% recyclable. Toledo Chairs are stamped under the seat with the name of the designer and the manufacturer, AMAT 3. Ideal for outdoor use. The Chair's seat, back and arms are made of thermo-treated polished cast-aluminum that won't reflect extreme outdoor temperatures. Chairs can be stacked up to four high for compact storage.
Material(s): Thermo-treated cast-aluminum and anodized, polished tubular aluminum
