A Chair Born From Researching New Ways to Join Metallic Tubes

Part of their In Tube collection, Achodoso Estudio’s In_tube chair is the result of researching new ways of joining metallic tubes. Their finding was to make a partial cut at the outside curve letting a tube with a slightly smaller diameter fit inside it to create a connection.

By using the tube within a tube connection, it results in both curvy and straight lines within the design, all reached without the need for welding. It also allows different colors to be used in the same chair by swapping out parts.
