Assemble designed a zinc passivated steel chair which is used in the cafe of Goldsmiths CCA, fabricated by Cake Industries.
The chair seat is made from a single piece of thin metal, just 1.5mm in thickness. The fabrication process involves the production of a laser cut flat template which is then simply folded and riveted to create a rigid shell. The shell is attached to a leg frame made of 15mm tubular steel using 5 rivets. The chair is given a bright iridescent finish using an industrial process called zinc passivation, typically used as a coating for industrial components to give them corrosion resistant properties.
