Stick up: Spike chair by Alexander Lervik.
Text: Detail Daily
It was on a trip to the Philippines that a Swedish designer, Alexander Lervik, was caught in a rainstorm so intense, that it felt like an opaque sheet of water. In the slashing rain he saw the form of the chair.
The chair is made from steel tubes welded to a three millimetre baseplate. Slotted into the tubes are ash staves, milled to finish flush with the steel.
It is safe to sit on, once you have spotted its a chair.
