The Airport Chair designed by Werner Sobek suggests the weightlessness of a ribbon curved in space. In terms of its shape, materials and construction it conjures up analogies to aircraft construction. Its elegant shape is formed from rolled aluminium sheet. All joints are flush and accurate. As is usual with lightweight construction, the cross-sections are minimised with regard to the requirements.
