The symmetrical shape of UUfie's Peacock chair is made from a latticed sheet of Corian, a solid surface material that's often used for kitchen work surfaces and bathrooms, which curls round at the bottom and spreads out at the top to create the back of the chair.
The sheet was slit to create the lattice then stretched apart and folded round in a thermoforming process that uses heat to soften the material.
"Like children playing with paper by cutting, bending and folding it, we have created a single sheet of acrylic composite material into a peacock," said the designers. "Resembling a peacock tail in courtship or a blossom opening, it makes a visual statement in any space, indoors or outdoors."
