The Cafe America Chair by Grain Design

June 9, 2009

Grain Design, which describes itself as a collaborative of design thinkers that was founded in 2007 at the Rhode Island School of Design, have created the Cafe America chair.

From Grain Design:

Café America is a surprisingly comfortable indoor/outdoor chair. Taking inspiration from ubiquitous chain-link fencing, it recontextualizes the unsung material. A unique cushioning effect is created by the lightly tensioned chain-link seat and back. Café America is made of recycled chain-link whenever possible and flat-packs for efficient shipping and storage.

Below is James Minola demonstrating the assembly process of the flat-packed Cafe America chair.
All that is needed is a few minutes and an allen wrench.
