Pair of Douglas fir armchairs by RO/LU with hanging seats. The wool felt textile seat covers were designed in collaboration with West Coast artist Ashley Helvey. Powder-coated, welded-steel "chamber" from the series "Surfaces On Which Your Setting and Sitting Will Be Uncertain". These rare "swing" chairs were produced by the now defunct Minneapolis-based contemporary design studio. Only 3 were produced.

About RO/LU

The furniture designed by RO/LU, a Minneapolis-based firm, looks purposefully unfinished. Established as a landscape design studio in 2003, RO/LU attempts to incorporate principles of outdoor architecture into its indoor furniture. Made from plywood and particle board, the design of RO/LU’s modular chairs share more with Rudolph Schindler houses than they do most home furnishings. Almost a decade since its founding, the firm now consists of three members: Matt Olson, Mike Brady, and Nathan Coutts. In addition to furniture design, RO/LU’s work extends to urban planning and public art.
