The Weightless Collection explores ecological principles of resource efficiency. The use of a durable, yet lightweight, recycled stainless steel frame was inspired by the revolutionary Eames’ furniture of the 1940s. The triangulated criss-cross frame also references the ubiquitous South African wirework sculptures and windmills found in the Karoo landscape.
Constructed in moulded plywood, the seat and back of the Weightless Tub Chair are identical, mirrored forms. The frame is made from CNC (computer numerically controlled) bent, electropolished stainless steel wire and TIG welded. The frame can be finished in either polished stainless steel, which makes it rust and scratch proof, or powder coated in various colours. The upholstered seat can be customised in the client’s choice of fabric.
The Zebrano veneered shell is available in other veneers and the fabric seat can be upholstered in other finishes, including the customer’s own material.
