Aerowing Flywood Chair by Egbert-Jan Lam

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

A beautiful use of the one sheet plywood. Just wondering what she does with the leftovers of the cut out.

Via Ron Beck Design

Hugh is an Australian designer who has this chair published on Coroflot as well:

The “Whippet Chair” draws inspiration from the breed of dog of which its name is derived. With its slender atheletic styling the chair is designed for short term seating environments. The seat is ergonomically inspired by a classic tractor seat form, giving the user maximum comfort without encouraging prolonged use (This is important in environments such as cafes and coffee shops with a fast turnover of patrons).
