light, stable and stack-able the ‘boss chair’ by designer tobias nitsche was produced in collaboration with german 3D veneer specialists danzer. the technique employed allows for a more radical curvature – the plywood furniture’s thin parts are stiffened with the three dimensional molding and then glued together by four rods to complete the construction. aesthetically the chair visualizes stability and comfort, practically it is ideal for gastronomy or public places where furniture needs to be stacked or moved around.
