Chamfered chair / Prototype


The ‘chamfered chair’ is a stackable armchair designed mainly for dining or cafe and restaurant use. I have taken an inspiration from the classic bentwood chair and designed the ‘chamfered chair’ as re-interpretation of it.


By replacing the curves on armrest and backrest with flat surfaces like chamfering, the chair has more supporting surfaces for the body and gives more comfort.


Although the frame is made of solid beech wood instead of bentwood, I aim to keep the beautiful lines which the traditional bent chair originally has. The chair looks very simple, but it has different expressions depending on the angle you look at.

material: beechwood, laminated plywood

dimensions: W590mm x H800mm x D535mm
