Duet Dining Chair by Neri & Hu for De La Espada is named for the two flowing lines of timber that form the overall shape of the chair. Originally created as a variation on the classic Thonet bent-wood tradition, Duet is actually made from a series of carved wood components, joined with mortise and tenon, creating the appearance of continuous curves, while the visible join lines and beautiful grain patterns reveal the chair’s construction. Duet is available with a timber or an upholstered seat.
Available in American black walnut, American white oak, or European Ash in a range of finishes, and a range of fabric and leather options.
Crafted at the solar-powered De La Espada factory in Portugal and rigorously engineered with the support of De La Espada’s product development team and expert craftspeople. Durability, comfort, and aesthetics combine for a product that lasts a lifetime.
Timber is sustainable solid wood from North America or Europe, offering long-term repairability of the surface. Natural color and grain variations in every plank make each piece an individual. Traditional wood joinery bonded with wood glue ensures structural integrity. All finishes are non-toxic and applied by hand, sprayed, or rubbed.
Textiles supplied by a renowned Danish partner with fabric mills in Norway, Italy, and the UK. Leather sourced from tanneries in Sweden and Italy using only hides from European cattle.
