Precision Engineering for Prototype Folding Chair

Pipecraft Innovations.  Prototype folding chair

Created within our Precision Engineering division for Ash Formations – a London based furniture supplier,  we recently completed the prototype for this folding stainless steel “Directors” style chair.

The design brief specified that a chair be developed for upmarket and high end occasional use where storage capability is limited, but with no compromise on comfort and visual appeal.

Precision Engineering for function and design flair

Our precision engineering division constructed the chair in marine grade stainless steel and developed an innovative sliding system  for the chair legs to collapse into. This significantly reduces the width of the chair when folded.Precision engineering for Prototype metal chair

A good design concept coupled with our precision engineering skills and experience in metal furniture production has resulted in a final product which is comfortable and durable, whilst offering design flair and ergonomic efficiency.

The product is primarily aimed at the leisure marine industry e.g. Motor Cruisers, where a number of these extremely comfortable seats can be stowed away in minimal space. Other applications envisaged are for bespoke location meetings and conferences where, due to their transported size, a large number can be taken to location via a small vehicle.
