At Salone del Mobile 2011, Artifort has presented the Shark, a new, extremely comfortable dining and meeting chair designed by René Holten. In designer’s words, “A model that acquired its name because its profile resembled that of the feared predator. However, you have nothing to fear from this shark. On the contrary, it’s an extremely comfortable chair to sit on. Sturdy with extra back support, a delightful chair for a long evening around the table, or for a productive meeting. The Shark gets its shape from a steel insert frame and a wooden seat that is then foam covered and upholstered. The shark is available with a 4-leg or sledge-base.”
