Product family

Concept

The chair suited to indoor or outdoor use is truly one of the most versatile chairs on the market.

Designed to be perfect for future recycling utilising mild steel and polypropylene the chair is also considered to be very 'green'. In keeping with this ethos Loft have also issued the ECO version made entirely from recycled materials.

The Polo chair was the first indoor/outdoor Polypropylene chair, originally designed in 1972 by Robin Day and described then as aesthetically satisfying, ergonomically correct and phenomenally hard wearing. September 2000 saw Robin Day and Loft re-launch the Polo chair in ten different colours.
