Style Quench for Your Living Room

Designers at Reestore introduce David, a stacking chair inspired by ring pulls and designs of Arne Jacobsen...

Oct. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- The ring pull revolutionized the way we drank fizzy drinks, taking us from the glass bottle and cap, and the awkward church key, to a nifty little ring of metal that pings with a flick of the fingernail, releasing gas [in a good way] Arrr – thirst quench.

A great design, but problematic - it was a nightmare for the environment… The people opening the cans thought nothing of flipping the lethal pieces of metal to one side, littering the streets and laying a death trap for intrigued small animals, both wild and domestic.   So super cool, and super convenient, but in need of super re-design!  This is exactly what happened after over a decade of use, finally a new ring pull was introduced in 1975, and was so successful that it is the one we use to this very day.

An evolutionary design?  Yes! Something that Max McMurdo of Reestore knows plenty about.  David the ring pull chair is a stylish reminder to us all to re-use, recycle, and upcycle metals, and to avoid littering.  Designed by Max and Gavin, the seat is a tribute to Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobson [], and his practical stacking chair from the 1950’s.  

"I based my work on a need: what chairs are needed? I found that people needed a new type of chair for the small kitchen dinettes that are found in most new building today, a little, light, and inexpensive chair. At the same time, I made one that can also be used in lunchrooms, as a stacking chair. It can be stacked by inserting the chairs into one another, consequently saving both time and energy." Arne Jacobsen [1902-71]

Resembling an old skool ring pull, David’s brushed stainless steel and aluminum body is beautifully ergonomic, so shaped for stacking.  The lightweight design, stylishness, and functionality make David the perfect seating choice for any swanky bar, cool café or modern restaurant.  

“We produced the ring pull chair as efficiently as possible in our Bedfordshire studios, using a traditional hand roller.  Jacobsen’s work is an inspiration for many designers, and we hope that if he were around today, that he would like David as much as we do!”  Max says about his newest design. []

The name David is from the Hebrew origin meaning ‘beloved’, there is no doubt that David will be admired and more, either as a solo piece in your kitchen or living space, or as a set of four around your dining table.
