sebastian errazuriz: outline chair

‘outline chair” by sebastian errazuriz walnut wood, tempered glass 31 x 18 x 17 inches

the work of chilean-born new york-based designer sebastian errazuriz, ‘outline chairs’ return seating design to its most fundamental roots, ‘rescuing the linear drawing of the basic iconic chair’ by replacing the back and seating panes with tempered glass. the clean lines that define the structure of a chair are thus brought into focus, across the range of styles and models errazuriz has produced.

the series is on exhibition through october 21st, 2011 at cristina grajales gallery in new york.

  • Beautiful, elegant and simple. Not every design needs to be crazy or shocking. These are perfectly contained and timeless. I love that Sebastian Errazuriz can create a full range of works.

  • on the other hand, Mr. Errazuriz has done some amazing works, this unfortunately misses the mark.

  • I think you are right Tooma! This is kinda boring. Who hasn’t seen a chair without its seating or backing.

  • Sorry, but BOOOORRIINNGGG. Designer should emphasize the “outline” aspect MUCH more. Now this is just chairs with transparent backrest and seat…could´ve done better.
