Transit Chairs and Tables by Boris Bally

There is a cold essence to these “Transit” chairs and table from Boris Bally. Without overstating the obvious, the use of the old transit signs works based on the colors and flair they give. I’m not so sure about sitting in them though.

“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 chair perfectly offset the graphics of the recycled signage. Each edge is rounded to a smooth finish. Transit chairs are made individually (based on current signage stock) in Boris’ studio, NO two chairs are alike. The stainless steel hardware is rust proof. Recycled champagne corks inserted on the bottom of all chair legs protect floors and provide added stability.”
