NTC 16

design: Motomi Kawakami
W.490 D. 540 H.922 SH.650mm
Launched in 1977, the NT family of chairs has brought comfort and pleasure to many people over the years as one of Arflex’s flagship brands. NTC 16 revamps the traditional design by altering the height of the footrest and the seat?optimizing the distance between them so that you can sit in greater comfort.
The leather upholstery ages gracefully, softly conforming to your body and taking on a new look as time passes, while its luster stays accentuated by the frame’s simple form. Such a chair can only be a perfect match for modern dining settings, complementing trendy materials such as glass and stone.
