puzzle like inception chair by vivian chiu

hand-cut grooves allow the chair frames to sit comfortable into each other

‘inception chair’ is a seating concept which draws on the archetype of the chair nestling it within a progressively smaller form of itself to create the actual seat. developed by RISD furniture student vivian chiu, the design consists of 10 chair frames that fit into one another via hand-cut grooves which are cut out of the inner edges of the frames’ seats and backs. pegs on the outer end of each frame fit into the notches of the previous sized chair, sliding easily in place so that the horizontal edge between chair seat and back line up.
