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 2009 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.  A one pager on how to build is can be downloaded here soon.
