Tubular Chair

Made from 3 inch stainless steel tubes used in the production car exhausts. The Tubular chair is a result of conversations back and forth between car exhaust fabricators over a number of years.

In order to utilise their focused expertise, the chair works around a set of machining limitations defined by the production of car exhaust systems. It was designed to the technical constraints of mandrel bent tubular steel and intentionally bears the hallmarks of its making process.

The seat of the chair is made from recycled chip rubber often found in the automotive industry, which was cast around a metal plate and connected to the underside of the steel frame.
