The First Design-Protected Original AK47 Chair – Design You Trust

The First Design-Protected Original AK47 Chair


Here’s a chair fit for any firearm fanatic. Crafted from real AK-47s, this JamesEdition creation boasts style and innovation in its effort to pay homage to arguably one of the more infamous assault weapons. The inspiration came to artist Rainer Weber while he was reading a book on Michail Kalashnikov, creator of the AK. From here the chair was born.

h/t: maxim, hiconsumption


Each chair is composed of genuine, formally still in service 4 stb AK-47s with a fixed stock and 2 stb AK-47s with folding stocks, used at the front chair legs and arm rests.


Each weapon was completely dismantled and welded back together before getting chrome plated. The fabric for each chair comes from Backhousen in Vienna and handwoven in Venice at the Luigi Bevilacqua Company.


The synthetic pistol grips were varnished in black and the remaining wooden stocks were then treated with special varnish. This piece truly stands out in its design and artistic vision. Prices are available upon request
