Tubular Furniture from Ventilation Pipes and Scrap Metal

Eindhoven-based designer Lucas Muñoz has combined industrial steel ventilation pipes with a copper seat taken from a scrap yard to create this bulbous chair. Muñoz designed his Tubular chair as an exploration of the structural potential of different. industrial components. He wanted to showcase their ability to perform a function within a domestic environment. Muñoz constructed the seat from galvanised steel ventilation pipes and elbow connectors found in his atelier, as well as sheets of copper taken from a metal junkyard.”The materiality and shape – the practical means – of the industrial components allow them to afford a variety of roles if arranged in a way that offers some kind of furniture function for a domestic context.” The chair was displayed at the first edition of 21st-century design fair Collectible, as part of an exhibition called Hardcore, which also previously took place at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.

The Beehive Chair by Graham Roebeck

The Beehive chair created by New Zealand-based architectural designer Graham Roebeck won the inaugural 2011 Formica Formations competition. “Exploring the theme of today’s highly portable art and media –interpreted through the analogy of sculpture as frozen music- the form is that of a non portable guitar pick and a gourd that are rendered immovable. Frozen. Constructed from Lakepine Zero low emitting MDF, Beehive has beeswax polish to the edges, and uses Warm White Formica high pressure laminate to the vertical faces.”
