A Normal Chair with Unnormal Structure.

A wooden stacking chair, that connected the seat and the back by a part which has wedge-shaped section. The structure like this chair seems fresh, at the same time, it is not a common way because the strength may be insufficient when considering the direction of the force applied. From the front view, a banded line appears between the back and the seat, create a rhythm in the space where the chairs are placed.Although it is a prototype, this work confirms what it means to design an ordinary chair, and whether it is possible to update even a part of that.
These works were display at the Greenhouse in Stockholm Furniture Fair 2019.
