Description: 

Set of 8 Tulu chairs recently upholstered with Simon original fabric.

Structure in chrome-plated steel rod, upholstered in chenille velvet with rubber and synthetic wool padding.

One of the very first models that paved the way for the use of the rod, an evolution compared to the bending of the tube as it allows a very tight curve.

“Among the industrially manufactured chairs designed after the war, Tulu is the most beautiful one”  – Dino Gavina
