The collection includes a swing-seat, table, chair, chaise, and baby's high-chair and cot, all created using a process normally employed to produce tanks, submarines and safes.
The furniture was designed for the grounds of Sudeley Castle, near Cheltenham in the UK.

Here's some text from Tom Dixon:
Flame Cut Series
An installation of unfeasibly heavyweight furniture where Dixon challenges our ideas of acceptable materials, processes and notions of fitness for purpose. Little concession has been made to practicality or functionality, apart from the ironic reference to flat-pack furniture.
The furniture was created for the grounds of the 14th century Sudeley Castle. The historic setting bears the scars of 700 years of warring factions that destroyed all traces of the furnishing of earlier generations.
Tom has used the industrial process of flame cutting steel, which is traditionally used for manufacturing tanks, submarines and bank safes. Solid enough to resist the inconvenience of civil conflict and world wars and durable enough for the next 1000 years.
