This Patio-Friendly Chair Wants You to Show Your Stripes

The Zebra armchair from Janus et Cie is marked by a breathable series of wonderfully irregular incisions.

Barcelona-based designer Lievore Altherr created these Zebra armchairs for Janus et Cie using strategically slit powder-coated aluminum, which evokes the animal’s signature stripes. We love the outdoor accent—available in white, metallic gray, and chocolate, shown here—for the subtly imperfect incisions along its seat and back: Uneven, tapered at either end, and curved just so, the openings give each chair a bold personality that suggests it’s cool to show your stripes.
