scott jarvie: the atlas chair

scott jarvie will be exhibiting his atlas chair at this year’s 100% design london. the design is derived by projecting flat angled planes through a volume and using the intersecting elements to generate the profiles that create the sections of the chair. this allows complex surface geometry to be rationalized to planar surfaces, providing sculptural possibilities while utilizing materials efficiently, developing a system that facilitates construction.
