RECLAIMED WOOD CHAIR
As a final project for my high school’s shops program, I designed and built a chair. I drew inspiration from various modernist furniture styles, and strove to create something both ergonomic and organic in shape.
Built over the span of many months, the result was an undulating, vertebrae-like seat that followed the natural shape of one’s back. The slats that make up the backbone were cut from slabs of reclaimed wood, carefully sanded into smooth ribs, and varnished before being attached to the steel “spine.”
Designed and built from January to May of 2008
