The LATIS range, exclusively available at The Conran Shop, is a collection of three lightweight, versatile chairs that all share the same steam-bent frame made from a single piece of specially selected ash. The elegant Viennese-plaited lattice straw version is refined and super-light. There are also plywood and upholstered versions which are most suitable for commercial environments such as restaurants. All the seat components have been cut into recesses within the ash frames to ensure the chair appears light and modern. The chairs are made in Italy using a combination of hand and CNC techniques.
