The Ducane chair, based on an ancient Greek model, the Klismos chair, is made from sustainable ebonised hardwood and Moroccan leather. The original Klismos chairs were created by the Greeks during the 6th century BC and were the first chairs that allowed people to sit freely and in a relaxed, natural position. More than two thousand years after it was devised, the Klismos chair was revived during the later 18th and early 19th centuries. The form was revived again in 1906 when architect Emmanuel Pontrenoli recreated them for Theodore Reinach at Villa Kerylos in Beaulieu-sur-Mer overlooking the Mediterranean.
