Great in small spaces, the Gap Chair is stackable and can go outdoors.
Taking a very artistic approach, the wave-inspired Gap chair is as beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit on. The individual cross beams help support the frame structurally while creating a sleek, striking look.
The wavy cross bars that form the seat and back have “gaps” that are needed for stabilization, hence the name. It also refers to the “border between indoors and outdoors, fusing them into one”, since the chair works indoors as well as out.
The chair is held together with screws to help withstand the elements of the outdoors, something glue wouldn’t be able to do. All components are mechanized using low-waste CNC technology. The traditional mortise and tenon structure is held together by means of screws. Gap optimizes material: it uses just 0,016 sq mt from the thinnest sawn boards normally available.
