Metal Furniture

Hitherto metal furniture was largely made of mild steel tube, hence the familiar name 'tubular steel furniture'; moreover, designers tended to think in terms of wood forms and then to translate those forms into metal sections. Modern metal furniture is now designed as such, taking into full account the qualities of stability, flexibility and hardness which allow considerable reduction in sectional dimensions over comparable wood forms. As a viable material for certain kinds of furniture, metal commends itself for its consistent quality which is of great importance in large-scale manufacture; it can be worked to precision limits and its hygienic, non-porous, smooth surfaces, toughness and great strength render it eminently suitable for hospital, kitchen, school, office and dismountable furniture.
