Eileen Gray's voluptuous leather, tubular steel Bibendum Easy chair is now as familiar as icons of the International Style as Le Corbusier and Perriand's classic Grand Confort club chairs, yet for most of her career she was relegated to obscurity by the same proud singularity that makes her work so prized today.
the chair was constructed of hardwood frame upholstered with polyurethane foam upon a base of chromium plated steel.
Its frame is of chromium-plated steel tubing, seat of beech wood frame with rubber webbing. The chair is available in a range of leather coverings. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling, cover in fabric or leather.
