Chair #79

—Designer unknown, circa 1970's

This unique, hand crafted chair is made of heavy duty solid aluminum rods, making it quite heavy and stable. Its sculptural form, with the Greek-Key-like design on the back, also looks functional and comfortable. And because aluminum does not rust, this chair can be left outdoors year round. Apparently aluminum is a notoriously difficult metal to weld and work with as it's melting point is well below the other metals—meaning whoever crafted this chair was very skilled.
