The First AK47 Designer Chair by Artist Rainer Weber is a Unique Piece of Furniture
The first AK47 designer chair by artist Rainer Weber gives guns a better, non-lethal use.
This unique chair is made of six original, used AK47 Kalaschnikovs. It is made of genuine four stb AK47 featuring a fixed stock and two stb AK47, which were used as the front chair leg and the arm rests.
Made by Rainer Weber, an artist born in Vienna, Austria, this chair is one of a kind.
Rainer Weber has been fascinated by concepts such as design, technology and functionality since he was a child.
He has always been keenly interested in art and seating furniture of any type. His goal is to create furniture that is unique in its form, meaning to be different from other pieces of furniture you know.
The idea of a AK47 chair came when he was reading a book about Michail Kalashnikov, and decided to take that inspiration and put it into this unique piece of furniture.
And so, the first chair made of AK47 was born. The weapons have been completely dismantled, and put together by mans of 4L sections and 3 round sections.
The chair has the framework plus all the dismantled parts chrome-plated and then assembled together.
The material used for both arms rests and backrests have been ordered at Backhousen in Vienna and were hand woven in Venice at the Luigi Bevilacqua.
With this kind of weapon, the pistol grips could only be found in synthetic material in their original condition, then painted in black.
The remaining wooden stocks were treated with a special kind of paint, while the cartridge belt was manufactured in a special way in order to hold the original, chrome-plated AK47 cartridges.
A Russian steel helmet, also chrome-plated, with a leather-coated interior, will come as a package deal with these chairs.
The designer, ultimately decided that all L-sections and details from the gun barrels should also be leather-coated.
