Tube Chair

Tube Chair fits into a standard sized poster tube. In doing this it makes the chair a lot easier to carry and transport than a conventional chair.

It enables the purchaser to pop the chair under their arm rather than having to worry about getting it delivered; it may also be delivered by post with more ease.

The chairs frame is from standard sized beech and the slats from plywood, the chair is assembled using coach bolts and screws. The chair provides a feeling of achievement, once assembled, similar to that of having completed a Lego model. The slats of the chair are available in a range of colours.
