Las Vegas NEWH Art of Design Chair Competition
Las Vegas NEWH Art of Design Chair Competition
Powder Coated Steel


The annual Las Vegas NEWH Art of Design Chair Competition invites teams of two—an architect and a fabricator—to take a standard IKEA chair and transform it. Arktura’s winning interpretation for 2013 was to deconstruct the IKEA chair and reassemble it, pushing the original design almost beyond recognition. The seat from a formal dining chair became the core of a lounge chair, with a more relaxed posture and attitude. We added sheet metal components that combined laser cutting, perforations and advanced manufacturing techniques, wrapping the original seat with a new skin.
