AKABA | Kabi Swivel
Design: Jorge Pensi
The swivel chair of Akaba’s Kabi collection designed by Jorge Pensi is equipped with a swivable cross foot which can be either powder-coated or polished. On demand, additional castors can be mounted to the foot. Optional closed arm rests are available: they consist of steel tube, which can be powder-coated or chrome-plated. The colored seat shell is made of high-quality polypropylene. It is available in a wide range of colors and can be upholstered (seat only or fully) in fabric or soft leather. With its swivel base, Kabi swivel perfectly fits into office and hotel interiors.
