Inspired by building construction materials like concrete and steel, Fifth column, an architecture, interior design and furniture design consulting firm based in Vadodara, India, created the ‘Reo Chair’.

The design uses steel rods that have been bent at a specific angle to suit the ergonomics of a comfortable seat. The rods were then placed into a hollow concrete base, resulting in the creation of a outdoor garden chair.

Even though the chair looks heavy, it weighs just 17 pounds (or 8 kilograms), making it light enough for a person to easily move it.
