In Chicago, handmade wood carvings were cast in recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy, and hand polished. Upholstered in leather in December 2018 . Etched signature.
Canter’s is the legendary midcentury, 24-hour Hollywood hangout frequented by rock stars, actors and directors, writers and their entourages. The original Canter’s chair was developed for the second Canter’s Restaurant at MGM/Mirage’s TI resort hotel in Las Vegas, which was designed by Jordan Mozer and Associates, Limited for Bobby Baldwin, the CEO of Mirage. This chair is an updated variation of the original.
