BroadWay Armchair

iconicon
"BroadWay Armchair" Created by Boris Ballyicon
Give direction to any room with this chair made from the artist's trademarked process, involving a variety of fabrication techniques to transform these recycled steel street signs into functional and striking works of art. Each edge is rounded and filed to a smooth finish. Due to the nature of this artwork, each piece is unique and will vary according to availability of materials. Contact our Customer Care department for current availability of signs. Seat height 18 7/8" in front, sloping down to 18 1/2" in the back.

"An attraction to the bold graphics of discarded highway signage inspired Boris Bally to collect, recycle, and fabricate furniture of great wit and distinction. His chairs - with fragmented words, symbols and arrows splashed across their surfaces - seem to symbolize urban grit and rhythms."
--Michael Monroe
