fifth column bends steel rodes to create reo chair

 

fifth column is an architecture, interior design and furniture design consulting firm based in vadodara, india, and the ‘reo chair’ is their latest creation. the robust piece was thought as an extension of the grounds of a building with conventional construction materials such as concrete and steel. yet the challenge remained to convert the robustness of the materials to a more pleasing and gentle aesthetics. the circular form of the seat took away the conventional forms that are expected from some materials while colors added new values.

 

making of the reo chair

 

 

 

in ‘reo chair’, fifth column bents individual steel rods at particular angles and shapes to suit the ergonomics of a comfortable seat. theses rods are placed in the hollow concrete base, creating a simple outdoor garden chair. visually heavy, the chair that looks immobile is a mere 8 kilograms, allowing a single person to lift it on their own.
