More about HYDRO
The HYDRO chair has been blow-formed (through a process called Superplastic Forming) at high temperatures and then laser cut by robots. These methods were developed in the automotive industries to make deep and complex forms that were impossible to achieve a few years ago. The ballooned pattern gives strength and rigidity and lends a soft and humorous pop sensibility to the lightweight and shiny metal sheet.
Useable indoors and out, its extreme lightness and stackability make it not just a desirable sculpture but also a highly practical chair. Manufactured in Canada by sub-suppliers to Tesla, the HYDRO chair is one hundred per cent recyclable.
