The ALU Chair Has a Stiff Frame with Some Functional Versatility

The ALU Chair is perhaps a good example of a modern Bauhaus armchair: machine-made in sheets of metal and taking a form to fit the everyman. The sharp piece of furniture would be manufactured from a pair of aluminum plates that are cleanly cut and precisely creased to give load-bearing support and an embrace to its sitter.

There is a strong rigidity to the shaping of the contemporary perch, providing a very boxy seat with its flat and perpendicular backrest and arms. So that hardware was not necessary to bind any separate components together, the material forms U-shaped bends that create space within the object. Designed by Diach Seo, the ALU Chair's open frame can assist with electronics' cable management and double as a magazine rack in the rear.
