RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Living in an area where there are no companies specialized in the production of upholstered furniture, the design phase mostly covered the constructive aspect. Simple solutions had to be found in order to avoid the use of sophisticated equipments. The main constructive challenge was to produce the backrest only using only a sewing machine with a single needle and a air nail gun.
