Well known American artist Boris Bally's Transit Chairs are both witty and innovative. The transformation of recycled street signs celebrate a raw American street-aesthetic. The unique markings and patina were earned on the road. Created with the precision of Boris’ skill as a sculptor, jeweler and industrial designer, the pure lines of the chairs and tables perfectly offset the graphics of the recycled signage. Each edge is rounded to a smooth finish. Transit chairs and tables are made individually (based on current signage stock) in Boris’ studio, NO two are alike. The stainless steel hardware is rust proof. Recycled champagne corks inserted on the bottom of all chair and table legs protect floors and provide added stability.
Transit chairs and tables are dismounted for easy shipping and come with easy to follow instructions, all hardware, including an easy to use hex wrench.
Public collections of Bally's work include London’s V&A Museum, Museum of Art & Design, Carnegie Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Renwick Gallery and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.
