Made In Brooklyn chair by Sergio Mannino Studio

November 12th, 2014 by retail design blog

The Battery Conservancy and NYC Parks invited designers and artists from around the world to submit their design for the new Battery Park Chairs. Sergio Mannino Studio accepted the challenge and designed a metal chair that could be easily fabricated within a few miles from the park. A structural frame provided the necessary rigid support while distributing the weight accross the base to protect the grass and the soil. The perforated laser cut mesh is designed to allow air to flow under the chair and the rain to reach the grass. It also makes it easy to lock the chairs at night.
