Introduction: K'nex Chair

furniture made out of k'nex has always fascinated me, that's what motivated me to make this chair out of k'nex.

So let's get to business:
Pros:
1: it can hold people up to a 100 kilogram (and maybe even more, but I haven't tried).
2: I think it sits quite comfortable.
3: It looks nice.
4: As you see in the second picture it's got quite normal distance proportions.
5: It's durable because if it breaks you can fix it easily, but you can't with a normal chair.

Cons:
1: Sometimes the connectors on the rear end snap out, it has no consequences though.
2: the back is not incredibly strong, you can't lend back with too much force.

PS: zorry vor bed englisch, i vrom holland.

    Just a suggestion put arm rest and then support the rear part by building trusses that connect to the arms it will support it

    That guy also has quite a lot of time on his hands. Or maybe he works for the knex equivalent of Legoland.

    Well that picture was taken at a show in Japan. I believe that each thing was from a different person.
