Fascinatingly Simple

I have been admiring this design all day, and driving everyone around me crazy talking about it and making them check it out. What can I say? I’m fascinated by the Rising Chair! It looks more like a sculpture than a chair, and what makes this combination rare is that it’s flat-pack ready.  Designer Robert van Embricqs achieved the organic form by pulling up slats cut into a flat wood surface to see how the material should naturally mold to make the seat, back, and base. Intricate yet functional, the result is evidence of the special connection between material and designer.

    Are plans for this available?

    Colin it looks like as you sit you are pushing the “seat” away from flat/collapse, and lean against you are also pushing away from flat/collapse. It might even kind of rock fore/aft – not really like a rocking chair – but rock a little as you sit.
