Called Split Chair, the backrest and four legs are made from a single tube, with a sheet-steel seat slung over two cross-bars between them.

Here's some more information from Lorch:

Split Chair

During the last couple of months I have intensively studied the design of steel-tube furniture between 1920 to 1940. With the Split Chair, I intend to develop further the classic tube bending construction on the basis of today’s technology. Through the bridging of traditional tube bending with newest 3D laser-technology, a new construction, which stands for material efficiency and self-evident design, became feasible.
