This chair is made from a 1/2 sheet of plywood, uses no glue or fasteners, and is held together by a single ratchet strap. I made this chair because I was interested in the forces at play to make a chair stand up: the different parts in tension and compression that make up the structure. It's also part of a broader study I'm up to experimenting with ergonomics- trying variations on the dimensions and posture of Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavillion Chair (1929).
Step 1: 3D Model
I designed this chair in Fusion 360 (it's recently become my go-to modeling program). The file is attached here, please download it and tweak it yourself! Fusion 360 is free for "enthusiasts", and it's on both Mac and PC.
