Many thanks to Core 77 for this beauty of a stacking chair design.
Aluminium Stacker by David J. Irwin is highly reminiscent of that style of cheap and tacky chairs used in hotels and cafes that want to present themselves as being “high standard” when in actual fact they are nothing more than over-priced.
Not that that is the compariosn we want to make here. The comparison is the shape, and the shape is a global succes story par excellence
What sets Irwin’s chair apart, however, is it’s “Oh so simple” stacking mechanism.
Through the inclusion of a slit in the seat the back leg passes perfectly through the seat. And beacuse the slit is exactly one front leg width from the back of the frame, the chiar stack perfectly.
The design is completed by a nylon coating to protect against wear and tear.
