NineZeroEuropean Beech, 2024
NineZero is an adoption of traditional Windsor-style furniture in modern furniture making.This chair utilizes conventional Windsor joinery in a geometric form. Those historical joineries not only have structural advantages, but are also authentic.

The strucural joineries on the sides of NineZero create a graphic pattern of the chair, symbolizing the transition from erganomics Windsor structure to my exploration of liner forms.

Making of the chair is technical challenging. NineZero pushes the edge of the joinery. Though the chair presents all 90 degree joints, each “spindle“ is turned with a slight shoulder to provide struc- ture.
