Viennese designer Marco Dessí created these stacking chairs milled from plywood to reveal the material's multiple layers.
The layers of birch-ply are held together with black resin, which enhances the decorative pattern.
Prater Chair comes in three colours and has been designed for German furniture maker Richard Lambert.
Here's some more from the designer:
The idea for this stackable chair came while reflecting about traditional Viennese chairs, here reinterpreted in a contemporary way. The chair is made of plywood with black phenolic resin glue between the layers, which results in the strong graphic impact when CNC-milled.
The decorative effect is the result of the technology combined with the multilayered plywood. The rigorous constructive approach leaves the impression as if the chair could at any time be taken apart into flat modular pieces ; and then again, it has the aura of a strong, fully-grown entity.
Material: Birch plywood, CNC-milled, 2009
