CARPENTER CHAIR, ErranteArchitetture for F / A FakeAuthentic Gallery

Corrugated steel rods, wooden scraps, insulating sheaths, etc. Before being covered, dismantled, hidden from view, or lost, this collection of materials, shapes, and forms suddenly revealed an alternative potential to us.

Carpenter Chair is an icon of construction and a eulogy to the exploration of the ordinary. It is a low, comfortable, and flexible lounge chair inspired by the aesthetics of the construction site.

Composed of metal elements, wooden laths, and heat insulation pipes held together by pairs of wooden laths, Carpenter Chair exists in two versions: one is covered with a soft blue cushion made of insulation pipes, the other made of simple industrial plywood panels. The support elements are two hardwood wedges, the presence or absence of which allows for different types of seating.
