Whether you’re looking for new art to spruce up the walls or a simple design for sitting, Dan Civico’s  ChairKIT_ is an awesome piece that deserves your attention. Each artfully-designed graphic  panel does double duty as a flat-pack buildable chair that comes with just about everything you need for quick construction. The ChairKIT_ is the result of a fun experiment where Civico mixed manufacturing processes with handcrafting techniques to create a stylish set of modern chairs  at an affordable price point. Made from CNC-routed, sustainably-sourced birch plywood with various handcrafted, solid timber inserts (including walnut and oak), Civico’s kit maximizes materials  while offering users the chance to construct their own furniture, thus giving them a more unique sense of ownership.
