Figueras International Seating
Pau Borràs (Design Figueras Center) i Adrià Ruiz
The chair’s design revolves around a fractal system that reproduces its own basic structure in larger and smaller scales. Its proportions function in the same way whether in single units or groups of chairs. The concept is based on a single material: Flanders and Southern yellow pine wood, with zigzag joints and free of any metal elements. The chair is formed by 20 angled wood strips so as to minimize wood waste. Its form replicates the way the chair holds our weight, placing more weight on the back legs and thus, between these and the front legs, giving the illusion of interwoven tree branches.
