Gustav Duesing‘s Chair 23D has an intriguing skeletal shape and a brilliant flat-pack design. The chair is cut from a sheet of 0.7 inch thick birch-plywood, it assembles without the use of glue or screws, and it packs flat to ship, saving on CO2 emissions during transportation.
We spotted Gustav Duesing‘s flat pack Chair 23D at this year’s DMY Berlin international design fair. The chair’s structure is based on the skeleton. A central backbone element defines the overall shape and branches out into a set of ribs forming the seat. The chair’s interlocking no-glue-no-screws system can be fully assembled in no-time, and once it’s all set into place it will provide a sturdy seat for years to come.
