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 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.
Transit chairs 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
