RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
To achieve the desired transparency and lightness so that the inherent properties of each material can be enhanced, each element needed to be separately addressed but solved as one entity. Adding a cast metal part in manufacturing process, optimizes production by upholstering the back rest separately while adding strength to its connection to the wooden frame. These designed elements would prevent the heavy appearance of typical massive wooden chairs.
