Sol LeWitt Chairs:
Inspired by Sol LeWitt’s conceptual art of orthogonal linear geometry, these chairs synthesize successive combinations of horizontal and vertical lines in multiple configurations. The sculpted backrests on the chairs are designed to provide an ergonomic support while the notched geometry allows the two chairs to interlock in multiple configurations. The series of horizontal and vertical profiles overlap producing new patterns in each configuration, in homage to the wall drawings of Sol LeWitt.
Constructed from CNC cut plywood profiles, they can be mass produced while allowing them to be flat packed and shipped before assembly. The friction joint design allows the chairs to be built without mechanical fasteners. The current chairs are a prototype in the iterative design process working towards a model to be produced for the public.
