Picture a Chair is made from one flat sheet of plywood. By using an archetypal shape of a chair, the remaining parts of a square create the three-dimensional chair structure. The chair is hung to the wall as a picture, which shows the silhouette of a chair. It is the extra chair that is only needed sometimes, the rest of the time its just a picture of a chair.

Development in structure, lighness and scale. Laser cut acrylic model in 1:10 scale. The internal structure stiffenes the material to reduce sideway movement. The ‘third leg’ has cut outs in the shape of a lamp to make the chair lighter - visually and structually.
