Pipo Chair by Alejandro Estrada for Piegatto
Updated: Jan 28, 2020
Designed by Alejandro Estrada for Piegatto, the Pipo Chair is conceived as a wooden surface that integrates armchairs and seat from the same material. The idea is to create a monolithic piece from one material that opens in the outside and stretches in the centre. The way you can see trough the armchairs gesture evokes a simple movement that lets light pass through it. Using technology to produce the chair with a conscious use of materials was the main goal for this project. This chair is made out of two sheets of plywood. Composed of 29 main curved sections that are cut into two or three pieces overlapped, making it very efficient in the use of material.
