Lightweight and graceful the Chipman Collection takes its cues from organic forms found in nature.

Joining Landscape Forms’ existing Terrace Life group of products, the Chipman Collection is perfect for terraces, rooftop gardens and other private and protected spaces. Designed by landscape architect Robert Chipman, the new collection features a cast aluminum table and sculptural chair conceived for more intimate social spaces.

For inspiration, Robert Chipman looked to the way in which nature shapes the landscape: "The orogenic and glacial processes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains have created amazing monolithic granite surfaces with smoothly sculpted curves and aretes. These shapes, especially in the Yosemite high country of Tuolumne, were highly informative to the chair’s form.” He adopted an innovative digital approach, which integrated 3D modeling, stereolithographic printing, hand sculpting, digital re-scanning and final solid 3D modeling.

In addition to the lightweight (16 lbs.) cast aluminum chair, available with or without arms, the Chipman Collection includes a 45" round table in dining and lounge heights. Chairs stack and both chairs and tables are movable, so users can arrange them to suit the situation.

The Chipman chair, made of a one-piece cast seat and back with seamlessly welded-on cast legs and arms, is a model of casting and finishing expertise. The table features a flat aluminum top encircled by a tapered cast rim, and is supported by an inverted cone-shaped cast aluminum stem connected to cast aluminum feet. Chair and table are finished with Landscape Forms proprietary Pangard II ® HAPS, VOC, lead-free polyester powdercoat. Aluminum used in manufacture contains 100% recycled content material.
