From the Era of Tubular: K-106

From the Era of Tubular: K-106

The bold and brash K-106 makes the cut for this week’s Geometric theme courtesy of its swooping, stadium-style tubular arms.

This shape (essentially like a racing track) isn’t strictly considered a basic geometric form, yet we love how it fuses the linear with the circular.

The chair itself is of mysterious origin with no identified designer. Given its predilection for the tubular and the style of its upholstery (a rolled foam frequently used in autos and small aircraft), K-106 likely dates to the 1930s.
