One-Sheet Dining Chair
Designer: Terry Davies
College/University: Rycotewood Furniture Centre
Wood Supplier: Y Goldberg
Wood Species: Finnish Birch Ply
The One-Sheet Dining Chair has been designed using one sheet of 4mm birch ply, laminated in 3 layers. The choice of material was critical as the 4mm ply has just enough capability to bend around the curves. All the components have been cut from one lamination process. The designer wanted to create an affordable chair that was resourceful of materials and had a short production time. The components are assembled using a combination of joint connector bolts, wood to metal dowels and vibration mounts.
