Description

Pair of mysterious Lucite acrylic folding chairs in the style Philippe Starck and Charles Hollis Jones. Exceptional condition. We’ve never seen anything like these before and had no luck coming up with a definitive manufacturer or designer. The typical style folding chair is never entirely Lucite. Besides the screws that attach the backs, these ghost like chairs are 100% acrylic. Heavy and superbly designed with smoothly executed folding components. Only minor scuffs and imperfections on these chairs.

What is lucite:

Lucite acrylic was invented by the Dupont Corporation in 1931. It was crystal clear with a 93% transparency rate, resistant to water and UV rays, and was low density yet stronger than previous plastics. It quickly became the material of choice for WWII aircraft windows and bubble-tops because of its clarity, weight savings, and bullet resistance. Shortly after WWII other uses for Lucite were found such as embeded elements. It has remained one of the best kept manufacturing secrets, handed down through trusted associates. Common misconceptions about acrylic agreed that it yellows, turns brittle and cracks over time. While this may be true of very cheap plastics, it is not so with true acrylic. Lucite Acrylic is an extremely high quality product that has proven over the past nine decades. Aircraft windows are acrylic and, if taken care of, will remain in like-new condition regardless of age or exposure to sun. Acrylic is a high quality product. The versatility of acrylic allows it to be custom designed into a variety of shapes and sizes, incorporating many different types of embedded elements.
