Roman chair - Sella Curulis

Roman chair - Sella Curulis Low-poly 3D model

The sella, equivalent to our stool or footstool, or even a low chair, was the most common type of seat during the Roman period, probably because of the ease with which it could be carried from one place to another. Furthermore, the chair, in its simplest forms, was cheap to manufacture. The sellae were used both by slaves and by the emperor himself, although those of the lower classes were surely much simpler, while wealthy people had access to precious woods, decorated with inlays of metal, ivory and silver leaves and bread. of gold. The folding chair (sella curulis) was an important sign of power in Roman times. There were seals with or without a backrest, which folded like scissors, like modern camping chairs, for easy portability. Historically accurate game ready asset modeled in Blender and high quality PBR (Diffuse/Metallic/Roughness/Normal_OpenGL) textures in Substance Painter at 4k 2k and 1k resolution and subdivision ready for different LOD implementations, at FBX and OBJ and .blend files to work with any 3D software.
