The Crane Chair speaks to the industrious spirit of Edmontonians. Inspired by Brandon Vickerd’s “Dance of the Cranes,” the Crane Chair borrows shape and form from construction machinery, bridges and scaffolding. Through utilizing these familiar patterns, the chair communicates feelings of strength and building vertically upwards. At a time when Edmonton is revitalizing the downtown area through infrastructure and growth, this chair would be visual echo of change.
The Crane Chair is a physical representation of Edmonton’s ambitious pursuit of growth through building and the city’s persistent reaching for more.
Made of steel and polypropylene, the chair’s materials also reflect Edmonton’s well-known character of resilience to the adversities of weather. Polypropylene plastic is extremely flex resistant, cost effective, available in any color and is recyclable. This design is also available with a bent plywood seat as an option for interior use or for special events.
