Spring Wood Chair
Wooden furniture is gorgeous and timeless. Being hard, flat and rigid, though, wooden chairs rarely make for the most comfortable pieces. Unless they can bend like these crazy Spring Wood chairs.
Created by designer Carolien Laro, the seating chattels are really made from wood and they will really flex when you sit on them.
The Spring Wood’s seating top bends down because slits have been cut onto it. A total of 480 steps are involved in the multiple CNC-milled cuts that have been made on each chair, which forces the erstwhile weight-resistant block to conform to your seated behind.
The Spring Wood chairs have won Carolien the Wood Challenge Prize, as well as nominations for an IMI Award and a DOEN Material Prize.
