An Iconic Object

Cab Stool is the world's first example of a free-standing cowhide stool informed by the relationship between the skeleton and the skin; an authentic example of production excellence.

Overview

A bestseller and signature piece in Cassina’s I Contemporanei collection, the Cab Stool, designed by Mario Bellini, was a new kind of stool when it was designed in the 1970s. Showcasing the skeleton with a tailored-to-fit skin constructed entirely out of leather, this stool has been much cloned in the decades since its conception.

The upholstery consists of sixteen pieces of saddle leather. Individually die-cut, they then undergo fourteen discrete procedures, again by hand. The pieces are sewn together only when their outer edges have been trimmed to ensure a perfect fit. Once assembled, the cover is attached to the stool’s steel skeleton and held in place by means of a zipper fastening, as in a bespoke tailored garment. The wide array of colors for the saddle leather cushion is now complemented by pigmented saddle leather in black, brown, and Russian red.
