2×4 Chair


This site wraps up the results from a five year long project in which I explored making modern furniture from common lumber.  In 2008 when I was looking for a well designed chair for my backyard and could not find any that I liked, that was affordable and well constructed. Inspired by Gerrit Rietveld’s crate chair, I embarked on designing my own. After lot’s of sketching and prototyping I came up with a design that could be build with a few boards and screws. The chair was featured in ReadyMade Magazine in 2010. Hundreds of people from all over the world have created their own versions sinds then. Download here the simplified 2×4 Chair One Pager Instructions
