Rusty sheet steel chair made of rusted and lacquered sheet steel, is produced in an edition of 21. Rusty designed by Max Lamb.
The net of a chair is nitrogen assisted laser-cut in 1.2mm mild steel, folded by hand and secured with double sided VHB foam tape, combining a computer controlled industrial process with hand assembly. Left outside the chair begins to corrode and a natural patina develops.
Once a strip of the VHB tape has been applied to the appropriate surface, the backing paper is removed and the corresponding face pressed against it. An instant and permanent bond is achieved. Adhesion of the last two faces completes the production of the chair.
