While this chair looks like something you’d find in a Restoration Hardware showroom, its story is actually far more interesting. This is the work of Lucas Munoz, a Netherlands-based designer who turned to steel ventilation tubing to craft pieces of furniture. Part of the Objects From Interstitial Space collection, this chair is predominately composed of steel pipes and elbow connectors, and it’s finished with a copper seat that Munoz curved by hand. Then he attached everything using aluminum rivets, keeping the all metal appearance intact. The idea was to take something that normally functions behind the scenes (ventilation tubing) and bring it into the living room. While you can’t buy the Tubular chair, you can go to your local Home Depot and have a go at it.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
