The Lescaze Chair references the architect who introduced glass brick to the United States in 1934 with his seminal modernist townhouse renovation at East 48th Street. Much as William Lescaze valued glass bricks for their light transmission and structural integrity, Trueing has deployed the material for support – a stabilizing leg that filters and plays with light as it bounces off an anodized aluminum seat.
