BRC Designs Unveils Amazing Piano Key Chair at ICFF

This fantastic piano key chair  struck a chord for sustainable design last weekend at the opening of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York. Created by BRC Designs , the armchair gives tired and out-of-tune pianos a whole new purpose. The surface of the Korobeiniki chair is constructed entirely from the instruments – from the internal wooden frame to the seat itself. The chair’s dynamic, textured exterior features an assortment of layered keys, giving the classic instrument a modern twist.
The Korobeiniki chair consists of an assortment of piano keys and parts that have been stacked and joined in a cube-like shape. The different tones of the keys gives a sense of depth to this edgy piece, and its strong structural shape gives it a hint of the dramatic presence of a piano in its original form.
South Carolina-based BRC Designs  never fails to impress with their unique designs. Having already won us over with their geek-chic circuit table  and their card deck chair , we can’t wait to see what unconventional design could be up their sleeve next.
