From the Designer:

Kirk is a very light chair made from aluminium for indoor as well as outdoor use. The concise alignment of the bending edges and sharp profiles result in a fascinating contrast while the generously built shell of the chair is very comfortable to sit in. The aluminium, made from a special alloy, is bent accordingly into the shape of the seat shell before the edges are being folded to increase stability. The seat shell resembles a lightly formed sheet of paper loosely hanging in a framework.
