Warren McArthur, whose furniture helped define the glamour of 1930s Art Deco curves. Warren McArthur, a mechanical engineer by training, registered several patents for furniture construction methods using standardized aluminum parts. Over the span of his career, McArthur was able to create a sizable catalogue of furniture and a number of technological innovations in aluminum furniture production. He created a system of aluminum furniture in which no spot welding was used in the construction. All the components were fitted and screwed together. The joints where the tubes intersect were defined by a series of exterior aluminum rings. The design is an example of seamless construction. His furniture is mostly recognizable for their curved tubing and the way he used rounded edges almost more prevalently than right angles.
