Interesting. Makes me think of some of the 16-1700´s chinese chairs that had a boxy lower part and light, airy bent frame on top. Like these:

I was looking at Hans Wegner’s “Chinese Chair”, but if
course I’m familiar with the traditional Chinese style.

I was going to try making a sort of bar stool using this
bent crest as the back rest, but I couldn’t figure it
out. The crest is 22” across and that seemed just all
over the place for a stool, to me. To add side supports
I would have either to make the stool seat ridiculously
wide, make the supports ridiculously curved or
angled (which I don’t mind doing but I’m looking at
building furniture to hit price points and that sort of
thing can get complicated to fit well).

... so I decided to try this idea out. It’s a little
promising. This is not a bad angle. With the crest
and no verticals on the front half, one could sit cross
legged on the chair, if one wanted to.

Have your say...
