Asher Chair

rhino, pla, birch plywood

status : ongoing

Concept for a furniture system that functioned as a didactic assemblage – to illustrate connectivity and analog/digital relationships. Both of these factors influenced the ideas that went into this chair.

Version 1 of the system (green connections) was first envisioned as a modular kid’s chair. Wanting to work with wood but also developing and manufacturing a printable connective system that could snap together (and unsnap) so that as an individual grew, they could swap out the wooden panels to adjust to their size – to re-engaging the furniture in order to actively modify its dimensions.

In version 2 (white connections), snap-fit parts were swapped with bolt though connections for a more robust connection system necessary for adult sizes while still maintaining the ability to flat-pack the system for shipping.
