Provenance and Background Info
Love these chairs! These are something I’d have in my own home in a second. They are based on the famous Cassina Cab chair designed by architect, Mario Bellini in 1977. The Cab chair quickly elevated through the ranks to become a design icon of the 20th Century. I think these Fasem chairs are an improvement on the Cab design (they’re not as bulky as the Cab chair and the quality is at least as exceptional). I’ve had Cab chairs in the past but I’d rather have these if I needed any more dining chairs. This design has just as strong investment appeal too.… Well at this price I think a lot more. The last set of Cab chairs I had sold for $825 each quite quickly. I like these just as much- the workmanship is just as exceptional and they’ve been priced here at LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE of the last Cab chairs I sold (these are also Italian made and this particular set is actually older than the last set of Cab chairs I sold). Cab chairs are still being made to this day (over 40 years on). These Fasem chairs are also still being made (about 30 years on).
This is the S91 Model by Giancarlo Vegni for Fasem. Designed in the very early 1990’s, this set has the original labels AND they're each embossed underneath in the leather- “Fasem Made in Italy 07 94”. The 07 94 is the date – July 1994. For chairs that are 25 years old, the condition is incredible but this is of little surprise when you inspect them closer. The quality is exceptional and the workmanship meticulous. The thick saddle-leather has been HAND-STITCHED to the highest standards. These chairs look classy and stylish but the comfort is just as good- high back and the leather melds to the shape of your body as soon as you sit down. They’re super-comfortable for dining...CONTINUED AT -
