Contemporary acrylic furniture pieces are clear winners in the design world
German chemist Otto Rohm was in the process of developing safety glass for use in automobiles and airplanes when he inadvertently cast the first acrylic plastic sheet. It became commercially available under the trademark Plexiglas in 1936, and instantly became a design sensation. Its physical properties allowed the material to be heat formed, machined and bonded with nearly invisible joints. But sheer beauty is what has made acrylic furniture a longtime favorite in the design world.
A leading source of designers, architects and design-conscious consumers is New York based Plexi-Craft. While acrylic pieces are thought of as modern, their Contemporary George II chairs have a slight traditional feel when paired with a pedestal dining table, proving flexibility goes beyond material characteristics. The tufted cushions are upholstered in leatherette but are also available using the customer’s own material.
Balanced with a low back and foot rest, the Z bar stools invite guest to sit. They are a playful touch against the more serious dark stained island.
The high back Z chair is also bent from a single piece of acrylic. Its transparency doesn’t distract from the view and creates an illusion of space. A glimpse of the custom acrylic sofa base reveals a built-in shelf arm rest.
Their expert design team can turn a dream into a reality. An elegant custom vanity was created for this narrow bathroom window space. Void of color, but full of life, these modern designs prove there is beauty in simplicity.
