Plywood Chair

The prototype for this chair was designed and built during my college years.

This was the first piece I sold as a furniture maker and it featured in Homes & Interiors Magazine with continued success in taking me to the national finals for The John Logie Baird Awards for Innovation.

The original inspiration for the chair was rock formations found on the West coast of Scotland, coupled with a design brief to create a chair from half a sheet of 12mm Birch plywood with a portion of contrasting material.

I created a form which can easily stand alone as a thing of beauty yet not compromise the comfort of the user, being very comfortable to sit in.
