Cantilever 290 Dining Chair by Steen Ostergaard for Cado

Designer: Steen Ostergaard

As seen in:

The iconic cantilevered 290 chair designed in 1966 by Steen Ostergaard is a simple and elegant chair with retro futuristic styling.

The 290 was the first ever cantilever chair in the world that was injection-moulded in one single operation. This also required the largest piece of moulding-tool ever made for injection of nylon at that time. 

The chair is made of polyamid (nylon) reinforced with fibre-glass, is fully-depth coloured. The chair has a silky gloss, is stackable, antistatic and cannot delaminate. It can be used indoors and outdoors. The chair is available in a number of colours. 

We can source vintage originals of this chair through our Film and Furniture interior design service. Please contact us.
