From the Brooklyn based design studio Nine Stories Furniture Co has come an homage to the great Art Tatum in the form of a one-of-a-kind chair. A long time jazz enthusiast and furniture designer Andrew Rumpler, constructed the piece from the keys of a discarded upright piano. The piece, which weighs less than six pounds can hold up to 150 pounds. “Tatum's Lounge," as it is called, is on view at Voos Furniture in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. The chair was featured in the NY Times Home section on June 16th, 2010 in an article by Tim Mckeogh titled “Looking for the 'made in N.Y.' lable."

The piece can be seen on the designer's website.

And it will be on view at Voos through spring 2011.
