ROLU Chairs

If you’re looking for a true-to-materials seating option, check out these chairs hand made by ROLU. They all are extremely simple plywood and OSB chairs inspired by 70s DIY books. There’s also a variety of bigger armchairs and tables which I’ll bookmark for posting at a later time.

Behold the Flux foldable armchair by Douwe Jacobs and Tom Schouten. Made from a single piece of recyclable polypropylene, the Flux transforms from a flat, self-contained “envelope” into an armchair. In ten seconds. Pretty neat. Available mid-November in lots of colors.

Sparkling Chair by Marcel Wanders

So, this little chair was launched in Milan this year and has now just hit the shelves, so to speak. Produced with the same blow molding technique used to manufacture water bottles, the hollow spaces of the chair are filled with high pressure air to strengthen the design. Plastic usage is minimal this way and the chair ends up weighing in around 1kg. The legs can be unscrewed from the shell as well.

Made of 100% PET (i.e. fully recyclable)

Softwood Chairs by Veronika Wildgruber

Have you seen these wooden hand sculpted chairs by Veronika Wildgruber? Note that I inserted ‘hand sculpted’ right off the bat so you wouldn’t expect big box store prices. All three chairs (more shown below) are limited editions, so you might want to get a move on if you’re interested. Wildgruber’s Wood Bulb Lights (£150/light) are also worth checking out.

Ant Chair, 3 leg

You are probably familiar with the regular 4 legged Ant Chair, but take a look at the 3 leg version. I think the shape of the chair looks a little more interesting with only 3 legs to balance on, and considering it’s slightly less expensive than its sibling, this guy might just be the one to go for.

Masters Chair

The outlines of the three chairs that inspired the design of this chair weren’t immediately apparent to me, and it was only after noticing such that I began to see it in a non-alien-like way. Seeing that owning a 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen ($466), a Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen ($1,390), and an Eiffel Chair designed by Charles Eames ($249) will run you approximately 2 grand, this chair’s price could be considered a steal.

Heller Selene vs Bartoli

So, these green chairs stood out quite a bit when I ran across this photo the other day and habit proved unavoidable. A quick lookup to see if my memory served correct and surprise, surprise they weren’t quite the chairs (see #1) I thought they were. Now, onto the questions regarding the two chairs on the right:

a) which one do you think was made first?
b) which one costs less?
c) which one has removable legs?

Do you care? Maybe? Answers below.

Barrington Chair

You know that feeling you get when you see someone really cute and you can’t get them out of your head for days, even weeks? That’s what’s happened with me and Studio Dunn’s Barrington Chair. Yes, I’m crushing on a chair. I wrote a haiku about it…
