A new design by Stefan During
I first saw this interesting chair at the Ton Booth of Ton at IMM 2013. Speaking with one of the Ton people he believed it to be the first wooden cantilever ever.
Found this in Carl Hansen’s Copenhagen Showroom,
This chair is upholstered in Paul Smith designed fabric.
I add a Video here:
Design of 2008
A lightweight chair inspired by old aircraft constructions.
Maple wood construction with airplane-plywood seat and back. The chair is made with the thought in mind to create a lightweight chair in wood.
The 2 timber side frames out of simple small beams work together with the plywood engineered seat and back. Together they make a light, clear, functional and good proportioned construction.
A technical tour de force searching for the boundaries of designing in wood.
A form with character, made with an eye for detail like the traditional halved joints.
The plywood seat and back construction is cleverly engineered, it bends a little acting as suspension making the chair more comfortable.
The first prototype weighs 1,4 kg
