You most certainly cannot discount the extraordinary creativity and the precise calculations that went into the design of the AERO Chair; however, the simplicity of its assembly and the effortless appearance of its success as a seat must be celebrated.

The wonderful thing about this graceful dining chair is that its form looks meant-to-be. Its construction requires no nails, screws or glues to stay together, relying quite remarkably on one component slotting through the other. Just two pieces of elegantly bent wood compose the luxurious perch. One becomes the seat and a pair of rear legs while the other acts as an arching backrest and a single front support. Jean-Francois Roulon's AERO Chair bears and distributes weight subtly through the overlap of the sinuous splicing elements.
