More Furniture in 24 Hours: The W Chair

More Furniture in 25 Hours, The W Chair, photo

A second design from Spiros Zakas’ 1979 More Furniture in 24 Hours book. See my first post on this book. Click below to find plans for building this chair or go to my Flickr set for high res versions. Zakas’ book features many designs by his Parson’s School furniture design students in the 1970s, and this particular student produced some of the book’s most interesting designs. Where are you now, Daniel J. Cohen?

    I found this book, published in the year I was born, at the local thrift-shop last year and it turned me onto designing single-sheet flatpack designs; furniture which can completely be produced from a single sheet of ply-wood and ideally also flatpacked (“IKEA style”) for transport.
    Coming from a food-tech background, discovering this wood-working part of my brain has been great fun. Besides being a food-geek this book turned me into a part-time furniture-geek. Now researching classic Brittish “Campaign” pieces, the ultimate in portable flat-pack furniture, trying to make it even better.
