Hot Crossed Chair

Cross-stitched Wood Chair is a design by Penelope Ann Ramos, a current design student at Pratt University. This design was inspired by creating a fabric design from wood. The design is made up of wooden slats which are then sewn together with a cross stitch pattern. The wooden slats are perfectly draped over the frame of the chair achieving a soft yet sturdy design.

    Looks uncomfortable and ergonomically problematic – does the front bar cause the users legs to fall asleep or do you need to sit using Larry Craig’s wide stance?

    • penelope says:

      this is a prototype and upon testing, decreasing the wood slats would put more height to the seat rest having an exact seat height of 18″, so no need for a wide stance.
      appreciate the observation and comment πŸ™‚

  • Joy says:

    Very cool! Did you make all of it yourself!?

    • penelope says:

      yes i did πŸ™‚ every bit of it
      from it being a trunk, building jigs, sanding the wood down, to dealing with big saw machines hoping i wouldn’t lose a finger.
      thanks joy!

    Love the design, but I'm kinda concerned about it breaking. The back of the chair doesn't look too beefy.
