Most of the time we underestimate the importance of a great chair and don’t pay enough attention while selecting one. When in reality, we really shouldn’t. We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office, enjoying a meal, or simply sitting and reading a book for leisure! Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic and aesthetic as well. It needs to provide good support to our backs and butts, and also somehow harmoniously complement the rest of the furniture in our home, and our interiors. A unique chair design that completely caught my attention is the 6-alloy chair by SUNRIU Design. Let’s have a look at it!
Designer: SUNRIU Design
Conceptualized by SUNRIU Design, the 6-alloy chair doesn’t look like any of the regular or traditional chairs you see on the market, or anywhere around you. It looks as if a stool and a chair had a love child – resulting in the intriguing-looking 6-alloy chair. Built using aluminum and Piñatex (leather created from pineapple leaf), the 6-alloy chair features an aluminum body, that comprises of three tubes. The three tubes are subtly interlocked together, with two pieces of leather forming the seating section, and a nifty storage section beneath it (or a cute spot for your pet to nap in).
The leather is fastened onto the aluminum body using buttons, making the material easy to replace or remove for cleaning. In fact, the chair is pretty eco-friendly since the leg pads of the chair were created using cork, which can be recycled later, making it a product that rates high on the green scale overall.
The various screwed joints that hold the different elements together are easy to assemble and can be replaced individually, which extends the life cycle of the chair. The different components of the chair can be easily packed in flat corrugated cardboard boxes and shipped away efficiently. Users can assemble the chair at home simply using the screwdriver. The 6-alloy chair is designed to be a lightweight and eco-friendly chair that users can easily build in the comfort of their own homes.
