Boss Chair by Tobias Nitsche for Danzer

"More deformation means more stability in a chair with less material," explains Tobias Nitsche, who designed the chair during his studies at ECALin Lausanne.

Here's a short description from the designer:

Boss is a plywood chair that combines traditional woodworking techniques with the use of 3d plywood.

I worked in cooperation with the German company Danzer who is producing the material. Using their technology gives the chance to construct a plywood chair with a more radical curvature.
