Open back aluminium garden chair
Powder Coated Aluminium
The alu chair was originally designed as an outdoor chair for Anne Holtrop’s Bahrain pavillion for Expo 2015 (World Fair) in Milan. Seeing that it is made of aluminum, it is quite lightweight and suited for both indoor and outdoor use thanks to the treatment with beeswax and a uv protective lacquer. The aluminum trestle of the chair shines bright while the colored back and seating give it that typical Muller Van Severen aesthetic. “Choosing the colors was hard for this chair”, says Fien. “For the back and seating of the other chair we designed, we accommodated polyethylene, a material that is produced in a limited number of colors. These chairs are painted in a powder coating, meaning we could choose any color we wanted”. In the end Muller Van Severen chose sixteen color combinations which is a larger number than they usually work with. “This multiplicity of colors makes it look extra fun”, says Hannes. “You can actually create a landscape of colors”. “The colors of the chair really determine the atmosphere of the space”, Fien adds. “You can create a very playful or a rather serious environment”.
