A method of making a chair includes the steps of providing at least one female fastener device. The at least one female fastener device is inserted into a substrate for attaching the at least one female fastener device to the substrate such that at least a portion of that female fastener devices body defining a channel extends into the substrate and the projections extend through the substrate such that the distal ends of the projections extend beyond a second side of the substrate that is opposite a first side of the substrate. The distal ends of the projections are bent into the second side of the substrate. At least one male fastener is inserted into the channel of the at least one female fastener device to attach a chair component to the substrate.

The invention is directed to a method and article made from co-injection molding using gas-assist. The article has an inner material and an outer material. The inner material has a blowing agent uniformly distributed throughout the inner material. The outer material surrounds the inner material. At least one opening is provided in the outer material. The opening extends through the outer material to the inner material providing a pathway which allows out gas generated by the blowing agent in the inner material to escape through the outer material when the article is in a mold and after the article has been removed from the mold. The outer material provides an aesthetically pleasing outer surface and the inner material provides a strong core which is free of large voids, the inner and outer materials combining to form an article with a stable profile and repeatable size.
