Wooden furniture is easy on the eyes, but not always the most comfortable thing to sit on for extended periods. This “Spring Wood” design aims to change that by cutting wooden chairs in such a way that they become flexible.
Dezeen says each chair has 480 CNC-milled cuts, which provides a more giving surface for your arse to rest on. Designer Carolien Laro designed the first of her Spring Wood chairs by hand, and it took her more than 600 hours to emerge with a functional prototype.
While the stools with the wheels aren’t the world’s most attractive creations, I wouldn’t mind having this three seat bench somewhere in my house. [Dezeen]
