Mercury Lounge – Aluminum Chair By Chetcuti / Pardo

                                 CHAIR1 copy.jpg

Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo and industrial designer Michael Chetcuti have teamed up on another groundbreaking work of industrial sculpture. Their all-aluminum chair is the first in a planned line to include a coffee table and sofa.

Both Chetcuti, an industrial designer and metal fabricator, and Camilo, a multi-talented artist who is perhaps best known as the lead designer on the Ford GT sports car released last year, have expressed a passion for fine furniture design in the Cranbrook-Saarinen tradition. By bringing Camilo’s sense of automotive line and proportion and Chetcuti’s fabrication expertise to that tradition, the pair believe they can build a line of furniture that will be both thoroughly modern and uniquely Detroit.
