P & C Chair Logo - The parameters of this project called for a chair that was to be designed and built entirely out of one 4’ x 8’ x 3/4” sheet of plywood, using no glue or fasteners. This bi-level chair was designed specifically for a parent and child, in a waiting room setting.

P & C Chair In Use and Detail Views - The intended purpose of this chair is depicted in the sketch of a father and daughter.

There is plenty of room for storage under the chair and the design allows for easy access to anything that is placed down below.

P & C Chair Functioning Prototype - This full-sized chair is slotted together using tabs and dowels, made from the original sheet of 4 X 8, birch plywood. The vast majority of the joints are hidden, to keep this chair looking as clean and modern as possible.
