Randor - Furniture design/construction

I created the steel chairs below using solely metal sheets and small bolts.  Besides maintaining the capacity for complete dis-assembly these chairs were proportioned using the human body and the Fibonacci sequence.  This age old system allowed for the arm proportions to use a classical technique on a very modern piece of furniture.
