EN - Tubular steel frame, with seat and back-rest of red sheet steel, with circular perforations arranged in grid. The metal used in this design is a standard industrially produced sheet, unlike earlier metal sheet chairs which were made from metal made especially for them. The sheet components of Kinsman's chair were initially made by a manufacturer of car and refrigerator parts, reinforcing the definition of the High-Tech style as the undisguised use of industrial products in the home. It's design was influenced by Hans Coray's pre-war pressed aluminium 'Landi' chair and enlivened with Pop Art's vibrant use of colour. The 'Omstak' is still in production, although its use has moved away from the home to commercial settings. With its foundations in industrial mass-production, the High-Tech aesthetic transcended national borders and stood in opposition to the Craft revival of the 1970s.
