DescriptionArmchair made from bent wood. The back, seat, and arms all connect on a continuous frame. The pieces of laminated wood are in flat, parallel strips and fold over to show soft, rounded edges on the armrests, top of the chair back, and end of the seat. The seat itself is woven, as the laminated strips of wood cross over each other. Each component of the chair has a double layer of wood strips.
