The Sputnik Chair is made from durable steel, available in four different colors, with a seat made from either certified white oak or recycled army fabric.

Made from durable steel, the Sputnik Chair is available in four colors and comes with a seat made from certified white oak or recycled army fabric.

There’s something so basic and beautiful about a simple metal chair. When it’s got great legs and customizable components like the ones in the Sputnik collection, designed by Fred Frety, that makes it all the better.

The tripod chair is available in three heights: high back, armchair and the stool. The base of the chair is made from steel, a highly durable material that will ensure you can keep this classic beauty around for a long time, and comes in four different colors: matte black, orange, gun metal, white or green. Several seat options — flat or carved, made from certified white oak in natural, an ebony finish or upholstered in reclaimed army tent upholstery — enable you to get really creative and adventurous when customizing this eco-savvy chair.

The Sputnik Chair collection is available at Environment Furniture, pricing starts at $475.
