Topographic Chair

ASSIGNMENT: Furniture, Lounge Chair

CHALLENGE: A form based lounge chair constructed entirely of plywood

SOLUTION: With the Topo Chair Project the challenge was to create a furniture concept whereby a three-dimensional form could be created from a rigid two-dimensional material, 7 mm thick plywood. The result was a ‘topographically’ inspired chair that comfortably conforms to the contours of the body. A system was developed whereby the structure is entirely self supporting with no hidden attachments other than a small amount of glue. Designed in 2000 and launched at the 2002 Salone Internazionale del Mobile with furniture manufacturer Frighetto.

AWARDS: Topo is currently part of the permanent design collections at SFMoMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
