The Un-upholstered Chair is designed to exploit the layered nature of plywood, creating a decorative textile effect by routing through the veneer to expose the interior of the ply. The metaphor is extended by the opportunities offered by the material - the pattern wraps continuously around the piece, with none of the mismatched seams of actual fabric.
While the routing would be easily accomplished by CNC today, this chair was produced by hand with a series of plywood tracing templates and a laminate trim router.
