Jesús Gasca set out to design a chair with light, fluid lines, resolved at every curve and edge. The result is the timeless and eminently versatile Gas Side Chair (2000). Its chrome-plated aluminum frame and curved seat and back cradle the body with no hard angles or sharp corners, offering ergonomic lumbar support for comfort over long periods. The versatility of this award-winning contract-quality chair is evident in the range of spaces its been used, from the ING Headquarters in Holland to the Nevada Museum of Art, the Valencia University in Spain to the inn at the Santo Estevo de Rivas de Sil monastery. It's a stackable, supremely well-constructed chair that comes in a wide range of colors and finishes. Plastic glides protect floors. For these color options, the Gas Side Chair must be purchased in a set of four of the same color. As the exclusive Stua retailer in the U.S., the Gas Side Chair is available only at DWR. Made in Spain.
