You’ve got to love the curves on this bent Plyboo Spring Chair from Adapt Design. Just looking at the picture one can practically feel oneself gently boinging up and down in ergonomic bliss.

These sleek and sexy chairs are about as sustainable as you can get without sitting in the dirt. According to designer Anthony Marschak, the single curving piece of Plyboo minimizes the weight of the piece and minimizes waste of the materials. A good thing for the manufacturer given the expense of Plyboo.


Jill got a good look at this chair at HauteGREEN and reports that its even better looking in person than in photos.

$650 from Modern Bamboo

    The vases are by Jerry Kott, http://www.jerrykott.com. He does custom pieces as well and is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

    Does anyone know who made the vases? I’d like my client to order them for their retail stores…

    How do they make the chair??? I am in a HS shop class and would like to reproduce it. I could get all the bamboo, but it would be much appreciated if I could get the thickness/ply #, the width at the base/mid/top sections, the overall heght, the length before first bend on base, vertical bend, and the other bend. Isn’t there a core of something else as well? I saw a picture of it with a dark core (either wood or metal I believe). I would love to obtain this information, but if, out of respect to Adapt-Design, you do not or can not answer me, then i understand your predicament and appreciate your time.
