Guy Arzi, Rocky Chair, A Night at the movies - at home, reclaimed cinema seats, recycled cinema chairs

Feel like taking in a film at your favorite theatre but can’t find enough energy to move your caboose from the comfort of your cozy domestic den? Now you don’t have to. Guy Arzi’s bright and fun Rocky Chair, which is made from reclaimed cinema seats, sets the stage for the ultimate home viewing experience by directly channeling popcorn-infused good times at the local movie palace.

A recent graduate of Nottingham Trent University and now based in Derbyshire, Arzi revels in taking discarded items from yesteryear, changing their context and breathing life back into them. The results are smashing – vintage chic coupled with a modern aesthetic sensibility.

Currently making a big splash at the [Re] Design 06 exhibition in London, Arzi’s vibrantly refinished Rocky chairs are stealing the hearts of nostalgic cinema-goers as well as anyone else who just plain appreciates smart, quirky and environmentally sensitive design.

    I think the designs are very inventive. although it does look rather stiff on the back

    Just came across this while looking for Guy’s contact details (long story). We ( actually sell the Rocky chair, if anyone’s interested in having a look, or seeing what else we do

    best wishes

    i think this is a graeat idea! People such as I do not go to the movies that often
    because of the uncomfortabilty of the seats. I have had operations on my back
    and spine so its really hard to sit for 2 hours. the design is great. colorful also.

    They’re cute and nostalgic, but neither of those qualities connote good design. I can barely stand to sit (stand to sit?) in an old theater seat at the old theater.
