  • FlatFish 1.2 Convertible Chair
  • The FlatFish 1.2 is the aluminum version of its predecessor the FlatFish 1.1. Operating in the same fashion as FlatFish 1.2 this multi-use piece of convertible furniture works as a dining chair, side table, small coffee table or bench. Typically used in the table or bench configuration the FlatFish 1.2 cleverly camouflages a dining chair lying in wait for that moment when an extra chair is needed - perhaps for that next dinner party.

    In a process similar to tailoring a suit, the 3 dimensional forms of the seat and chair back, which also serves as the tabletop, of the FlatFish 1.2 are created from 2 dimensional patterns. These are waterjet cut from light gauge aluminum, which are then formed and welded together. The legs are also waterjet cut and formed from 3/16 plate steel. FlatFish 1.2 has a durable powder coat finish and is available in a variety of colours.

    The waterjet cutting process also allows us to optimize theuse of material, thus minimizing waste. Any scrap material from the cuttingprocess is used to create additional products such as jewelry pieces. We call these Rem[a]inders. For us these remainders remind us to take responsibility for the allocation of our precious resources.
