The Scott Jarvie Atlas Chair should really be renamed the Vertebrae Chair. Honestly, let’s petition. Is there anything remotely atlas-y about it? I think not.

But seeing as it’s already been announced as the Scott Jarvie Atlas Chair at this year’s 100% Design London, it will have to remain so. 

According to, "The design is derived by projecting flat angled planes through a volume and using the intersecting elements to generate the profiles that create the sections of the chair. This allows complex surface geometry to be rationalized to planar surfaces, providing sculptural possibilities while utilizing materials efficiently, developing a system that facilitates construction."

Seems like a lot to take in. Honestly, if I were to pick up the Scott Jarvie Atlas Chair, it would be an extremely cool addition to my rather mundane furniture collection. Stats for Vertebraic Chairs Trending: Older & Average
