Strap Chair / Flatpack Furniture

Strap Chair
Strap Chair

Inspired by the increase in the transit of goods worldwide, The Strap Chair represents elements of the life of a shipping pallet from construction through to destruction and up-cycling. The simple, flatpack form is restrained together using only tie-down straps. The chair is manufactured from high-grade birch ply, endorsing the theme of the shipment of goods. Its minimal, nostalgic and rigorous form produces an attractive, and vibrant contrast between the natural and synthetic components.
