Jasper morrison, plywood chair, 1988

Jasper Morrison: "I originally made the Plywood Chair in Berlin for an exhibition Some New Items for the Home. The main reason it looks the way it does is that I had to make it myself, and the only equipment I had was an electric jigsaw and some ‘ship’s curves’. So it became a project to cut shapes out of a plywood sheet and reassemble them to make something three-dimensional. I found that by using a thin sheet of ply for the seat and curving the cross bars below it, I could achieve a cushioning effect, which in some way compensates for other, less accommodating features."
