Flexie Chair

The assignment of this project was to make a laser cut chair made solely of 4 mm plywood sheets, and striving to use as little material as possible. The chair should also be simple and expressive, and make use of the properties of the material. Finally the chair should be no larger than 50 x 50 x 75 cm (LxWxH).
My solution, The Flexie Chair, has a ‘beach chair’-like sitting position, with a flexible back, made of three sheets in a fender construction that utilizes the flexible properties of the plywood. This results in an ergonomic, expressive and simplistic chair.
