‘smood chair’ by apirat boonruangthaworn

thai designer apirat boonruangthaworn has produced furniture from recycled aluminum waste. the material is recast
to create the joints and tubes required to assemble ‘smood’, a collection of outdoor chairs and tables. during the production process,
any aluminum remaining is used for making the next piece, leaving no waste. since the joints and the tubes are assembled
using screws and o-rings, there is no welding required. due to the easy building and dismantling of the structure,
the extruded pipe can be replaced to allow for different dimensions. a powder coated finish can be applied to the frame for a variety
of different colors and finishes. the seat itself is handmade from (polyethylene) PE rattan, a material that can withstand any weather condition. 
the collection of stackable chairs were on display at the international furniture fair singapore (IFFS) 2012.

international furniture fair singapore / ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS) the international furniture fair singapore, held in conjunction with the ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS), began in 1981 and has since come to be regarded by industry experts as asia’s most prestigious furniture trade show. IFFS/AFS provides an effective marketing platform for regional companies to venture into the global market. as a testimony to the quality of the show, IFFS/AFS is the first asian-based international furniture fair to be accepted as a member of the elite union des foires internationales, a paris-based international authority on trade fairs. in addition, it is the only furniture trade event in singapore to be awarded the ‘approved international fair’ status by the singapore tourism board. IFFS/AFS is set to become even more comprehensive for the furniture players, with the addition of the inaugural deco asia and hospitality asia developed to expand the scope of the show.

  • I like these, but I’m not sure I’d call that stackable.
