Gustav Duesing [1]‘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 [2], saving on CO2 emissions during transportation.

We spotted Gustav Duesing [1]‘s flat pack Chair 23D at this year’s DMY Berlin [3] international design fair. The chair’s structure is based on the skeleton [4]. 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 [5] 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.
