Project completed while employed as a designer at Loubier Design in Philadelphia, USA
Dimensions: 21 L x 17.5 W x 38 H inches | Material: Black walnut hand rubbed with tung oil
The Floating Chair was a design collaboration with principal Kirk Loubier as a material investigation of walnut. How do you make solid walnut float? We designed the Floating Chair on Rhino and programmed the seat and seat-back to be flip-milled by CNC machine. The chair could then be assembled with lapped dado and mortise and tenon joints.
