A-Chair - first prototype (birch ply - osb -mdf)
The A-chair comes from an exercise where the brief was: how to build a comfortable and pretty chair out of a mixture of different production off cuts materials? In our business, despite we constantly try to optimise the material we use for our joineries, a good part of it end up in the burner. We wanted to try to give a second life to this part which mostly consists of uneven, unusable weirdly shaped pieces. Our best intuition was to bring all the suitable off cuts to a standard size/shape. So that we cut all the parts into 50mm strips and started to play with that. The A-Chair can be taken apart in few minutes by simply unscrewing coach bolts so that the materials can be dispose separately. This is very much an ongoing project since 2016.

We have also made a mini-me version with a table designed following the same principles.
