I built this chair last semester. Inspired by working at an equipment rental store. It is what I feel to be the strongest (design wise) piece I have made.
A quote from Design Boom:
Jeff Michael is an American designer who designed this unusual chair while attending ferris state university in the us. the first chair â€˜tank chairâ€™ took inspiration from the heavy equipment rental shop at which michael worked. Using the principles most commonly seen in military tanks and construction equipment, michael transformed the chair itself into a movable tread. using a three point structure, the wood frame can rotate around the axels and support its user.
