Hello to you Mr. Naked

Yes, it is more Milan Design Week stuff. Yes, I do realize that it was a while ago now, but I just keep running into great pieces (and Italy is my second home).  This one reminds me of a friend.  It has great personality.  It’s easy to ship and treads lightly on the earth too.  Way to go Outofstock at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan in April 2009!

Naked Chair A chair made of solid beech and folded sheet steel, it can be described as naked because the chair’s structural frame is revealed in the seat and backrest, flaunting its construction as its principle aesthetic. The intention was to dematerialise the chair and present it in its elemental state. The chair’s strength derives from the action-reaction forces between the folded steel sheets and beech wood frame. The Naked Chair flat packs in transportation, resulting in a low carbon foot-print.
