During NYCxDesign, at WantedDesign we spotted Alexander Purcell Rodrigues’ Cartesian chairs, a collaboration with California-based innovative aluminum manufacturer Neal Feay.

Named after Descartes’ Cartesian coordinate system – the foundation on which
CAD software is built – the simple silhouette of Purcell Rodrigues’s chair goes from function to art form. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum with a faded anodized finish, each chair has a mathematically-generated ornamentation on its surface.

Using Neal Feay’s cutting edge aluminum fabrication methodologies that uses minimal waste and unique finishing techniques, couples with generative modeling tools and algorithm-based patterns makes this chair a pretty cool and innovative piece of home decor.
