Deep Forest Chair by Kibardin design www.kibardindesign.com

The chair is made of 374 dowels that are shaped into a chair-like form, some serving as support and some just to create a rhythmic pattern. It is an example of a complicated 3D surface out of simple geometrical shapes. The wooden round cross-section bars have different length and through the accurate calculation of angles of incidence it forms a sleek and friendly surface in places of human contact. On the other hand it is a deep forest. Some of the trunks serve as a support, but on the whole you observe a nice chaos.
