Creativity
Plywood chair made of a single sheet of bent material. The aim of the design is making a chair out of a unique piece of material with the least possible cuts and joints. The process of transforming one flat piece of plywood involves cuts of the flat shape out of the plywood sheet (two chairs can be made out of a normal 120 x 252 cm plywood sheet), and bending of the material - with one joint on the overlapping parts and one metal rod for keeping the distance between the legs of the chair when one sits on it.
Design Challenges
The hardest part of the research is the present phase, looking for production possibilities for the design.
Production Technology
Bent plywood
