If a chair could resemble a playground apparatus, then that is exactly what Konstantin Grcic has achieved with his Chair_One Public Seating System 2. Die-cast aluminum bases are connected by a anodized aluminum plank, painted in polyester powder and connecting three seats together. One version of this seating system by Grcic is modified by adding a small, circular or square-shaped aluminum table in HPL laminate.
