The Under Bar Himmel presented 12 chairs made of ø 4, 5 and 8 mm steel rods, designed by Furniture Design master students from Aalto University's School of Arts, Design and Architecture.

The purpose of the exercise was to create light, but strong furniture using the space frame structure made of thin steel sections. The limited number of materials and uniform finish was chosen in order to make the power and possibility of the theme and variation as clear as possible, and to assure that in the end each student found a personal way of expressing his or her talent. http://underbarhimmel.aalto.fi
