Oato [1]‘s crafty Stuck Chair [2] takes the shape of a deconstructed archetypal chair [3] that’s been rearranged anew, using tension as a bond to ensure its pieces remain “stuck” together. The seating and the legs are crafted from wood [4] that makes them squirm tight, and the backrest is made out of steel so the chair won’t lose its shape when outside force is applied. Oato [1]‘s chair is a research project exploring new possibilities in both construction and material [5].
