Kirk Chair by Patrick Frey for Vial

"To create the Kirk chair, Patrick Frey precisely cut a special aluminium alloy so it bent into the desired shape.He used clamps to sculpt the seat shell over a frame formed by the tubular aluminium legs and back, then folded the edges to increase stability.The seat curves up at both sides to meet the lower bar of each armrest and swoops right to the top of the back, leaving large gaps in the corners.Designed for Vial to be used both outdoors and in, the chairs are stackable for easy storage and transportation."
