Concept

A collection of 5 steel chairs with a remarkable magnified optical effect. These pieces are light, harmonious and easy to use; they could be read as a result of the distortion given by the lens in Drop Table.

“Chairs that live in harmony, like a family. Whilst they are all similar, each chair has a slightly different shape, and its own personality. There is a wide chair, a tall chair, a short chair, a normal chair and a stool. It’s fun to choose which chair to sit on, depending on the day’s mood. It’s also fun to decide which is your favourite chair. Like a family sitting around a table, so the chairs are arranged around the table.” Junya Ishigami

Technical details
The structure of the chairs is in 12 mm tubular steel, curved using a numeric control machine, and 15 mm tubular steel legs welded together using internal reinforcement. The seat mesh is in 3 mm steel wire with a 40x40 mm diagonal weave, individually rolled for each seat. Finished with epoxy paint in the colours given in the catalogue, or electro-coated in the outdoor version.
