The Brut collection pays homage to the enduring industrial history of cast iron. Part of a forward-thinking series, the Brut Armchair is an innovative piece reminiscent of the structural forms of bridges and heavy machinery. With an elegant yet distinct heaviness referred to as 'raw' and 'untreated', the powder painted cast iron base is paired with contradictory plush upholstery. Beautifully durable and undoubtedly strong, the armchair is an ideal seating solution for use in public spaces, perfectly paired with the Brut Two Seater Sofa for use in a lobby area or workspace. Alternatively, use in a private household environment as a stand-alone statement armchair.
