exploring the material aluminum 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.

the over-sized legs of the design draw from the size and proportions of handrails found on public stairways
