Chair #154

—Designed by Forrest Meyers

Why is this named the 125 MPH chair? Anyone? Is it because it's so damn sleek? Or does it rock REALLY fast? Inquiring minds want to know. Forrest Myers, a California native, is clearly a fan of clean lines and simplicity. He studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, then moved to New York in 1961 where he quickly felt at home in the New York art scene. Myers’ sculptural metal works are the epitome of excellent workmanship. The chair is made of polished stainless steel and a candy apple enamel, and quite contemporary as well —the chair was created in 2007. It'd be cool even if it was named the 90 MPH chair.

Having said that, I can't help thinking of a really giant cookie cutter when I see this chair.
