The tallest facet here measures 16-inches (height of a bar stool) while the lowest facets measures only 14 inches that makes it ideal to be used as a low chair. Interestingly, the widest facet on the Dice Chair is 20 inches, which allows its frame to be used as a comfortable lounge chair.
Using the Frame
The Dice Chair can be used as a bar stool, a low char or a lounge chair by simply rotating the frame to suit your seating requirement. The chair comes with an easy wrapping goat leather seat, which is fastened around the facets by industrial strength Velcro hocks so that you are comfortable and secure sitting on the Dice Chair.
