‘Outline Chairs’ by Chilean-born New York-based designer Sebastian Errazuriz return seating design to its simplistic form and fundamental roots, “rescuing the linear drawing of the basic iconic chair” by replacing the back and seat with tempered glass. The series is on exhibition at Cristina Grajales Gallery in New York through October 21st, 2011.
With about 40 layers of over 1,000 lbs. of 100% recycled broken glass and 20 gallons of Epoxy Resin used to cover twelve typical household objects, including chairs, the tedious process took about three months to finish.
