‘The Stig Chair’
52”x 23”x 39”
Recycled Steel Pipe, Yellow Pine, Deer Leather, Stainless Steel
As Veraseri Designs’ debut into high performance Sport luxury furniture. The Stig Chair is specifically designed for the home, office, and travel charging of your personal Stig. Stig farms do not offer this penultimate piece in convenience and safety in the care and maintenance of your personal Stig. The Stig chair is equipped with two fast connect tube lines that are universal for every Stig, one for Nitrogen out gassing, and the larger for unprocessed minced raw Pork. The seating device also features push-rod suspension as not to jar your Stig during transportation and charging, an event that could prove explosive. Stigs from a Stig farm are vulnerable during the period of charging and outgassing, fluid and gas levels inside the Stig change and can become unstable and potentially explosive. The seating unit is as well prepared for such an event in the very rare case that your Stig for some reason explodes. The Chair has been coated with a special material produced and applied by the Line-X Protective Coatings Corp. This material chosen specifically for its durability and blast aversion. The coating can be hosed down if needed and resists 9mm small arms fire. It also sports gel-cushioned pads upholstered in Deer leather, which was harvested from a deer hit by the designer’s car. The frame of the seating device is made from 4130 alloy steel tubes, recycled from the frames of a number of Nascar Stock Car crashes.

Though the seater sits upon dye cut steel leaves, it is most comfortable and vanguards cushion like movement prime in Ergonomic Design. The piece also features conservation in manufacture with the least impact to the environment as possible within the creation of such a work. 80% of the electricity used within the welding of the over 1000 joints was generated upon the property of the designer with no harmful welding gasses released in atmosphere, thanks to a fume extraction and filtering system created by the designer. Taking about a year to complete, the piece utilized recycled steel pipe pulled from buildings in the process of demolition. The smaller rods were recycled from the Obama election campaign signs posted all over the country. Lastly the stain used within the base is a natural low VOC compound invented by the designer utilizing key minerals from the Alice Springs Desert of Australia.
'The Firefly Chair' is Veraseri Designs continuation of the Tolkienian inspired line of home accessories that fulfill multiple functionalities. The first being true comfort for the seater. The second being unbridled lines, and unique visual interest unlike any other seating device. And finally, the third being nocturnal visual transformation. An exceedingly powerful Rare Earth glow medium is selectively infused into the surface of the Red Oak giving it a brilliant Firefly green glow at night as if it were lit by a million Fireflies. A task not easily completed due to the recent Rare Earth shortage. The tree this piece was constructed from was struck by lightning upon the designers property, a property that for some reason is very prone to such an event.
