These are Cafiero Executive Desk Chairs, Model 187-DSBS, designed by Vincent Cafiero for Knoll in 1960. These examples date to the 1970s, many of them dated 1979. The listed price includes one Cafiero chair and we have several on hand. Their design features black tufted leather upholstery with piping, and has a swiveling 5-point steel base on casters.
Each chair measures 25.5 inches long, 25.5 inches wide, and 33.5 inches tall. They have a base seat height of 20 inches and an arm height of 27.75 inches.
