The flow of liquid metal inspired Nottingham furniture and product designer Philip Watts in the creation of the Mercury bar stool. Cast in aluminium, the stool features a re-cast antique tractor seat, which has been given a mirror-finish polish. Watts, a member of New Designers in Business, has donated a Mercury bar stool to an auction at the New Designers in Business exhibition being held at London’s Royal Festival Hall from 9 to 17 November. Money raised through the auction will go to The Design Trust.
