Charles Rennie Mackintosh Hill House Chair by Cassina


This Charles Rennie Mackintosh Hill House Chair by Cassina reflects Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s style and his fearless approach to the most challenging manufacturing processes. Originally a furnishing accessory for one of Mackintosh’s major design projects, Hill House in Helensburgh, near Glasgow, Scotland, from which its name derives. The linear, geometric form is evocative of the minimal, abstract lines of Japanese graphics, which confer symbolic and figurative symbolic value to the piece’s striking visual impact. This piece is seen by many critics as not only a chair but also a veritable treatise on the way space can be articulated. The tall back is defined by a succession of vertical lines that are topped with a grid of verticals and horizontals. Thanks to the mastery of the furniture makers of Meda, in the Brianza area north of Milan, Cassina has re-issued the Hill House chair, which is available in black-stain ashwood, with a velvet seat-cushion. 

Crafted in a black-stain ash wood, it features the finest traditional construction with velvet fabric cushion upholstery in a choice of colors. Dimensions: 55.5” H x 13.8” W x 17.5” D. See image of color swatches for the available upholstery color choices.Regarding upholstery colors, it is important to note that different computer screens, operating systems, and even web browsers have different color characteristics.
