The Pallet Chair is manufactured in a collective workshop in Lugano, Buenos Aires. Studiomama the London based company behind the pallet chair have also made the instructions available for purchase on their website to encourage others to rework wooden pallets into functional furniture.
A number of chairs were auction at the recent London Design Festival. Artists were invited to personalize the chairs, to be auctioned off for charity. Artist Cornelia Parker painted her chair with alternate white and red pigments. The white pigment was made from the chalk from the white cliffs of Dover, and the red, from a house that fell on to them.
