Lustables: The Café America Chair

Made from upcycled chain-link fencing, the Café America is surprisingly comfortable.

The texture of chain-link is not exactly cashmere, but this indoor/outdoor chair manages to re-contextualize it as a material. It’s also twisted and bound to be, as the designers at Grain put it, “surprisingly comfortable.” Via a unique cushioning effect, lightly tensioned chain-link also supports the seat and back. At the end of its lifecycle you can simply recycle the chair with metals, though it is designed to last (and at $875, it should).
