Chair 23D

18mm Birch-Plywood
Cushions (Fabric, Foam, 3mm Birch-Plywood)

Gustav düsing’s spaceframe furniture series is a small-scale application of his architectural research within the realm of digital fabrication. The use of material-systems - a system which is the combination of a material and a fabrication technology applied to scale as well as conditions on site - is key to homogenous and sustainable structures.

The formal design concept of this chair is based on the natural form of a vertebrate: a central backbone element defines the overall shape of the chair and branches out into a set of ribs, forming the seat. The legs are designed to provide a stable position with their shape reflecting the natural load distribution, reduced to trusses with tension and compression members.
