From ONE Sheet

I’ve suddenly become very interested in product and furniture design by architects. Their designs are distinctly different and represent an architectural and structural approach. In addition to the flower vase I posted yesterday, take this recently designed chair by Naruse Inokuma Architects. It was made out of a single slab of wood, which was then cut and bent. You can even check out the blueprints here!

Actually, that is not a single slab of wood. In fact, it has few similarities with real wood. It is thin veneer which has been peeled off the log. The veneers, it appears, are then layered over a mold to create the form. Solid slabs of wood cannot be shaped in this manner.
