Cut from a Single Piece of Wood

What is this! Only a single bit of wood and a small bit of steel support on the bottom, we’ve got quite a sassy looking little sear here! What designer Scott Jarvie has done is to not only make the single seat cut from wood with almost no waste, but multiple seats can be cut with very little waste from a single large regular sheet of plywood, too!

As you can see from the first picture and a couple others below, the One Cut concept is used primarily on this single regular chair, but below, you can see the idea implemented on several different forms.

It’s a whole potential family!

The seat provides a nice surface to sit, lumbar support, and a rather wild form to look at. Very pretty!

Very ergonomic.

  • Douglas Parker says:

    As an industrial designer, I wouldn’t call most of these designs “Very ergonomic.” Interesting idea and execution, but most people couldn’t sit in them for too long. It’s anything but ergonomic.

    • Steve says:

      Just how long did you sit in it before coming to this conclusion?

      • Luke says:

        I don’t even have to sit in it to get such conclusion… Perhaps you will get more comfortable if you don’t lean against the back of the chair.

      • Douglas Parker says:

        Pressure points on the body is the main concern with these designs, closely followed by support for the body. That’s why they aren’t very ergonomic, but they are aesthetic.

      are you the douglas todd parker that attended syracuse university?

    • hello says:

      Ergonomics defined mid-cent. modern. Get your mind in the present. Scott Jarvie designed it to influence how we use materials and waste. It’s a piece with ideological implications, not ergonomic applications.

  • imsilentfish says:

    nice~it can be of other materials such as hard paper to make it a portable instant chair for picnic or something^-^

  • igendesign says:

    it’s probably not an ergonomic chair (I mean ergonomics was not a consideration during the designing) and it’s may be not even comfortable.
    Anyway it’s a very intresting and a nice-looking structure.

  • You do not have to go through a heavy traffic because the items you chose will be
    delivered to your preferred location. Belts look best with bodycon dress that have a single color for breaking the monotony of the same.
    A few simple precautions forth with a few Google seekes can advise us a lot about any
    laser archetypal or accurate aggregation.

  • The demands of the more mainstream content, such as Facebook and blogging, can leave
    little time for these extras, and it’s important
    not to become so buried in online activities
    that you steal time away from your core business. If you are able to examine and master new trends, it will be easy to keep your target audience informed and glued to your site.

  • The idea of our homemade air conditioner with cool water is very simple.
    When tying the lines to your jugs use between 3′ and 6′ of line with a single hook attached.
    Those heated areas you make available are mighty
    tempting to them, and they know that human presence normally
    means an abundant, and readily available, source of food that they won’t
    need to work hard to find.
