wedge chair

client | capdell

2015

 

Solid wooden structure with seat and chair back in beech plywood, with powder coated steel base options.

 

The chair features a forward facing cantilevered seat. Although highly visual, its origins have little to do with aesthetics, rather it exists purely as a result of function and rational in the chairs construction.

 

The starting point for the design was a reflection on the constructive components that define all chairs; a seat, a backrest, and legs. In this case the three elements are visually separated, connected by a single unifying triangle/ wedge. Each side of the triangle serves to fix in place one element creating the structure.
