The Chrome is a perfect example of how reducing excess, unnecessary parts and understanding the materials you’re working with can allow for creation of a great chair. By utilizing the simplicity and ease of steel fabrication to make this chair, there is a much lower cost in production and therefore a lower cost to you. And better still, nothing has been compromised – this chair is an incredibly lightweight, durable model, and will work wonders for your everyday needs.

The most important quality of the Chrome is its material. Strength, rigidity, hardenability, wear resistant, corrosion resistant and toughness, in particular! Chrome Moly is a material that undoubtedly has undoubtedly has a bad rep for being very strong but perhaps a little on the heavy side. We have counteracted this and created a light chair from steel by using less material whilst be able to attain the same level of strength required from it.
