The Clip Chair was conceived for a risk themed exhibition, here interpreted as less is more. It uses as little material as possible to nonetheless achieve a stable structure. The final design evolved from a process of playing with unbent paper clips, hence the name. Although its construction uses only 8 mm stainless steel rod and seven layers of bamboo veneer measuring a mere 5 mm in thickness, the physical structure is nonetheless strong enough to support over 110 kg. The frame appears visually rigid but it flexes subtly under the sitter’s weight, a motion not unlike the movement of a rocking chair.
The Clip Chair was selected for exhibition at Brooklyn Designs and was featured in ArtReview UK.
