What is this?
Stamped seat shell supported on a frame that functions as legs and armrests, the back is punched with 49 hand-cut holes, and the seat with 42; gray rubber feet.
Why is this important?
This chair was among the first successful seating designs using sheet aluminum—a relatively new lightweight, weather-resistant material—anodized to harden the surface and protect against corrosion. The seat and back are made of a single molded sheet perforated with circular holes that lightened the form and when used outdoors provided drainage from the rain.
