Jose Santa-Clara Illustrates The Mekanno Chair

Jose Santa-Clara, the designer of the displayed project Mekanno - Chair by Jose Santa-Clara explains, A childhood memory revisited - Meccano, the model construction system invented by Frank Hornby. The enlarged metal strips, scaled up from 1/2" to 40mm, provide two isostatic side frame structures; the side frames are connected by threaded steel rods covered with high density foam upholstered in nappa leather. Wood is used to assure transverse rigidity; the hawthorn was selected for its yellowish colour and traditional use in fine woodworking. Green and red are the basic Meccano colours up to the mid sixties..
