Atmos Side Chair by Peter Danko Design
Simplicity in Design Conservation:
Perhaps the simplest of Danko concepts, the Atmos design yields 10% waste from tree to chair thanks to the ply-bent method used to form its sinewy legs. A strikingly small amount of total material is used—European Beech plywood sourced from FSC controlled forests, (Forest Stewardship Council), with colorful seats and backs sourced from surplus automotive seat belts., further helping to re-purpose unwanted materials instead of sending them out of the manufacturing space and into the landfill.
Meanwhile, the chair itself is a lithe piece of modern design, both a stylistic understatement and a mark of updated Shaker influence with thin members and an eared finish on each side of the back supports. It weighs a mere 13 lbs., yet is strong enough to find use in restaurants, libraries, and universities. Mix and match different belt colors and wood finishes, and complete the seat in either a straight or basket weave pattern. In any configuration, these are highly versatile chairs with big potential to impress with their ecologically savvy approach to modernity.
Danko chairs are made in the United States. Please note that some variation in belt color may occur as supply is aftermarket-sourced.
Please also note that chairs currently made from sustainable European Beech will soon be produced from sustainable, American-sourced White Ash.
