I can see clearly now…

Acrylic has come a long ways since the eighties in its engineering and thanks to new molding powders it can be formed to any shape. This allows for molds to be made considering the ergonomics of seating, allowing for seamless, comfortable designs that function but don’t distract or clutter. Case in point, this lovely, molded acrylic T-back chair with walnut legs that bolt to a six millimeter thick piece of clear molded acrylic with chrome plated stainless steel support joint. Available in colored acrylics as well, however, nothing is more elegant than the reflection of the lines in clear acrylic.

I can’t say I would ever consider reviving any earlier styles with this material, but I’m looking forward to its slow rise to the top of the furniture world. In the mean time, I will encourage baby steps.
