Chairs by Christopher Sproat seen at Los Angeles Union Station, Los Angeles - Union Chairs

Union Chairs

The elegant granite benches found at the Los Angeles Union Station echo the form of the lobby chairs installed in the 1930's, and provide spacious seating with wide armrests, which adds a sense of grandeur to the experience of commuting.
"In the old station, each traveler is treated as a dignified being at an almost royal event. Following the architect's example, I decided for this project to use the concept of 'union' as my theme. This is a union of the old and the new stations and symbolizes a union of person and building as well." - Christopher Sproat
