exploring the material aluminium as his medium, sam hecht of industrial facility has developed a chair that is made for the outdoors,
is lightweight and non-corroding. the design's oversized legs - which also extend into the object's armrests.- are informed by the
proportions of handrails found on public stairways these supports are produced via an extrusion process which makes
the furniture piece stackable and affordable. the resulting chair is simple in appearance, but hardy in stature, and makes a nod
to the 'landi chair' by hans coray.
