The Drake chair is an entirely fresh and unique take on seating which takes the geometry of the basic cantilevered stacking chair and reverses it to create a bold, yet approachable chair. A solitary loop of steel with a subtly curved seat is powder coated as a single piece, creating an exaggerated stance that is elegantly poised, stable and comfortable. The absence of seams, multitude of colors and ability to be stacked makes it suitable for outdoor applications. At the same time, soft matte finishes and upholstered versions add a layer of refinement for indoor seating options. The Drake represents an evolution towards distinctive designs that are oriented towards production. The design for Drake started off with a simple line drawing—a recurring gesture in the minds of the designers. The silhouette, despite its playful nature, suggests both stability and lightness.
