Knoll Washington Skeleton™ Side Chair

Designed by David Adjaye, 2013

David Adjaye’s cantilevered chairs establish a play between propping and balancing, so that they are simultaneously functional and sculptural. Washington Skeleton is reduced to a fine geometric lattice while its inverted counterpoint, Skin, offers a colorful envelope to the same form.

Description

The two cantilevered chairs – Washington Skeleton™ and Washington Skin™ – establish a play between propping and balancing, so that they are simultaneously functional and sculptural.

Constructed from die-cast aluminum, the chair’s shell and legs are cast in three parts and are connected using mortise and tenon joinery and stainless steel fasteners. The chair features four nylon glides and is available in three finishes: ultra-durable outdoor powder coat paint in black, green and grey; a copper plated finish is also available in a natural state that allows the chair to patina with age.
