Wooden caterpillar track makes a nice chair design: the Miserolo Chair
November 11, 2009 § 1 Comment
I love the kind of seating the Miserolo chair fits in. Designed by serbian designer Uros Vitas it is confortable and it allows a great deal of back-leaning without the fear of falling over.
But unlike all the other contraptions of the concept, which are whether metal-frame or bent plywood, this one can really be made anywhere with two pieces of strong flexible plastic ribbons and a lot of solid wood blocks. A CNC router is mandatory as it can precisely shape the blocks to the right angle so when unrolling, each piece would climb onto the other to shape the chair up.
Sort of beautifully caterpillar-esque, see the design below:
