The natural hide leather upholstery is exceptionally supple and fastened by artisans in hand-stitched seams that recall the structure of an elephant’s back bone, while the unique star formation, chrome-plated base ensures stability and allows 360° movement.

The Elephant collection includes a choice of natural full grain hide upholstery or a crisp white polyurethane seat, with swivel or four-leg bases in metal, plastic or beech finishes.
