TRANSIT CHAIRS + TABLES
BORIS BALLY

Well-known American artist Boris Bally’s Transit Chairs are both witty and innovative. The transformation of recycled street signs celebrates a raw American street aesthetic. The unique markings and patina were earned on the road. Created with the precision of Boris’ skill as a sculptor, jeweler, and industrial designer, the pure lines
of the chair perfectly offset the graphics of the recycled signage. Each edge is rounded to a smooth finish. Transit chairs are made individually (based on current signage stock) in Boris’ studio, NO two chairs are alike. The stainless steel hardware is rust-proof. Recycled champagne corks inserted on the bottom of all chair legs protect floors and provide added stability Transit chairs are dismounted for easy shipping and come with easy-to-follow instructions, all hardware, including an easy-to-use hex wrench.

Public collections of Bally’s work include London’s V&A Museum, Museum of Art & Design, Carnegie Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Renwick Gallery, and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum
Materials: recycled traffic signs, champagne corks (chair foot protectors), steel-hardware
Techniques: Hand fabricated, pierced, brake-formed, finished.

TABLE & CHAIRS ENTERPRISE MARCO DE GREGORIO

Table & Chairs Enterprise, designed by Italian architect Marco De Gregorio who is currently living in Barcelona, Spain. Design statement courtesy of Marco De Gregorio

These soft fluid objects are conceived as mesh molded and sculptured in a one-piece structure. It is a transition from the horizontal to the vertical by a combination of structural elements into one smooth and
dynamic formation.
This furniture evocates the fascinating and futuristic atmosphere of Star Trek (Spaceship USS Enterprise) and reinterprets usual objects with a modern conception of design.
Ultimately the new production methods are driven by the new possibilities of creating significant technological advancements in three-dimensional design software.
