Private Collection | February 2013

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]1. The chair starts fabrication with cutting aluminum tubing to match a side profile template.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]2. Once the parts are cut they are welded into a frame and subsequent frames are matched to the first one.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]3. The frame was specially designed so that the welds did not interfere with the formed panels that would later be bonded to this structure.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]4. Here is a stack of frames for three chairs.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]5. Here is the battery of formed and water jet cut parts from my supplier that will be the skins for the chairs.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]6. Trial fitting of the skins on the frames.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]7. The finished side piece is also trial fit.[/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]8. Once the panels are fit they are sent to the anodizer or painter for final finish. We hand brushed this panel and it has a magenta color anodize. [/one_third_last]

[two_third][/two_third][one_third_last]9. A lot of hand work goes into fitting and bonding the panels to the frames. That is Craig an architect friend of mine helping get ready for a show.[/one_third_last]
