With his ‘Pressed Chair’ the London based designer Harry Thaler presents a pressed aluminium chair, made from 1 m² of 2,5 mm aluminium sheet, which has been bent into shape to form a super-light, stackable chair. The piece – and this seems to be almost incredible – is extremely strong without any external structural support.
“By pressing structural elements into the 2 dimensional sheet, I was able to make a chair that pushes the limits of minimization and material. The chair is light enough to be lifted with only two fingers”, the designer explains.
‘Pressed Chair’ is part of this year’s Tent Selects and will be exhibited at Trueman Brewery from 23 – 26 September.
