Design graduate Joe Buttigieg has created a tubular steel chair that can be easily stored by hooking the seat over the surface of a desk or table.
Finished in red, the steel tubes splay out to form the legs and curve outwards to wrap around a laminated plywood seat.
The lightweight chair is designed to be slotted around the surface of a table to allow cleaners easy access to the floor. It can also be stacked.
Other chairs we've recently featured include aluminium stools and benches designed to look like folding pieces of paper and wooden chairs with bird-shaped armrests. See all our stories about chair design »
Here's some more information from the designer:
This chair is innovative and redefines the appearance of regular tubular steel chair forms. Designed through the play and manipulation of the material, while considering proportions, dimensions and ergonomics. This design fits into a box and stacks; these aspects appeal to manufacturers. A light chair that can be easily lifted off the floor onto a table appeals to buyers and shop owners. This chair is something new to the competitive contract market.
