Concept Design


Exploring the value of wooden manufacture and the flexible nature of wood as a construction material, the zebra chair is constructed of a series of plywood elements.

Structural stability is attained by the overlapping plywood strips that curve into one another. Chair’s legs are formed by plywood strips that are connected on the bottom, while evolving to bind the structure and form the base. Bending does not only satisfy the aesthetic needs of the particular design, but it is also necessary to provide the stability, as it restrains the legs.

From the wavy seat are detached 4 strips that are attached on the base. This type of connection separates the seat from the load-bearing unit and also provides springy support for the seat.
