mahogany, seat and back from an old school chair.
37cm x 56cm x 74cm.
Nina is an hybrid: the backseat and the seat come from an old school chair and I designed the structure. I wouldn't call it upcycling, because the truth is that I used pieces coming from the school chair just because they were already bent and confortable, and it would have been really hard for me to achieve the same results with my skilld and machinery I have available. So I concentrated on designing the rest.
The structure is composed by two separate parts, one makes the front legs and goes all the way to hold the backseat, the other one makes the back legs and with it's diagonal gives a lot of strenght to the whole body of the chair.
The outcome is a very very light chair, with a delicate intriguing design.
