Two Piece Chair

The Two-Piece Chair is a prototype for a bent plywood arm chair. The parti comes from the possibility of “folding” a .5m x 1m sheet - the standard size for plywood veneer. The back and seat pieces are made using two identical pieces, made from the same mold. A simple plywood piece is introduced as a seat, which appears floating above the frame. The result is a chair which is both efficient (using material limitation as design driver) and expressive (creating a chair that envelops the body). The design and prototype were constructed in a period of four months, where several digital and physical iterations were explored.
