This 1st production version of the CN° II chair by Maarten Van Severen was made in his very own atelier in Ghent in 1992. A thin slat of wood veneer is placed upon an aluminum structure.
These models are relatively rare and made in small numbers by hand.
Another version of this chair exists with a seat in thin aluminum, and these chairs have been added to the MoMA collection in New York.
