DIY Chair

Published:

A chair designed to be constructed using very cheap and basic building materials readily available from your local DIY shop or hardware store, using simple hand tools and joinery methods, by you. A design for everyone and anyone; mass-production in fact, but production by the masses rather than machines.

This chair provides a template for affordable and functional design easily constructed by both the highly technical and less practical person alike, using the most basic of tools and materials. But nobody needs to make the chair if they don’t require one. This is partly the point. The number of DIY Chairs produced will coincide directly with the number of DIY Chairs people want or need. Supply and demand in synergy, controlled quite naturally by the consumer.
