Beehive Ginger Chair

This low chair was inspired by a preference of sitting close to the floor. It was cut in 18mm birch ply and upholstered in original fabric using the tension of the foam for shape against a mechanical fixing beam. This allows the upholstery to be easily removed as preferred. The warm graphic pattern was inspired by the shape of Beehive Ginger and printed using spoonflower.

Also shown are some of the paper prototypes used to work out construction.
