The chair that wasn't a chair… This one was a bit mad though we did take it to Salon de Mobile at the Milan Furniture Fair. It has a stretch fabric and conforms to the body when you sit in it, very comfortable but was a completely unrecognisable form without a person in it.
An amazing and archaic process we'd love to do more. Another project awaiting more prototyping. The idea was to conceal the source of the lights; we'd rework this one for LEDs now.
Lell, a CNC cut plywood chair. I think we got about 3 chairs out of a sheet of plywood. Nesting was OK but nothing like Alien for material efficiency. It was strong an comfortable though and we did learn about water jet cutting and that CNC doesn't like splines… so much for all our beautiful curves, they where converted to straight line segments in machining—very disappointing when we where scraping to fund prototypes in the early days.
