Called Bone Chair, the design was developed by creating a boxy approximation of a seat and selectively removing material from each plane.

    I think this looks a lot like the chair designed by Marcel Klever of the netherlands for the Thonet/Mart Stam prize 2010 competition.

    It looks like the eco-friendly design we are use to see here every day , that would have been design by a someone watching to much the starwars trilogy…

    the reduction concept is a bit fudged at the back where the seat meets the backrest….. but still, a simple design process that produces a lovely chair.

    can i post a sketch of how reduced the chair could have been? I thought architects were smart

    architects should build houses.

    I love it! And, not at all similar to the Klever chair – I think this one is far more elegant. The Klever chair feels forced, wasteful in the way it uses its materials.
