American design critic Ralph Caplan famously said a ‘chair is the first thing you need when you don’t really need anything.’ We consider that to be amicably true – and that is why you need to take a closer look at the Aircooled Arm Shell Chair from Deus Ex Machina and Modernica.

The limited edition set of 50 pieces was introduced through Luftgekuhlt held on April 10th 2016 at the iconic Modernica manufacturing facility in Vernon, CA. The Eames-inspired design pays homage to the vent hole pattern made famous on the chassis of a bare 356 Speedster seat.

All the intricate components of the chair are presented in a tonal Elephant colour scheme and delicately finished with handmade sand-casted aluminium plates for added reliability and support.

Exclusively signed and numbered by Carby Tuckwell the chairs are available now via Deus Machina website. But hurry as they won’t be around for long…
