AKABA | Kabi barstool
Design: Jorge Pensi
Even the barstool in AKABA’s Kabi series is based on the principle of allowing for many different configurations while minimizing the use of components. Its skid base is made of solid 12 mm steel wire. The seat, which is available in numerous colors, is made of premium polypropylene. It can optionally be fitted with fabric or leather front or full upholstery. The Kabi barstool is available in two heights: 1,010 mm and 1,172 mm.
