Saji Chair by Laura Kishimoto

Saji Chair is a wavy wooden chair designed by Laura Kishimoto

The Saji chair began as a personal challenge to myself to create a three dimensional form from a single two-dimensional curve. Through bending layers of thin laminated strips I was able to retain some of the wood’s inherent flexibility and contort the curve into its compound shape. As the strips could not support weight individually, weaving provided a natural solution to bring rigidity to the structure as well as instilling a sense of movement in the overall composition.
