Design for free: flat-pack Zip Tie Lounge Chair
The simple wooden frame requires just 16 square feet (1.5 square meters) of plywood and can be cut on a CNC router in less than an hour.
OpenDesk’s platform allows users to download the plans for free, or use the OpenDesk network to contract a local fabricator to produce the chair in kit form.
The chair takes advantage of the flexibility inherent in zip tie joinery to create an articulated hammock of seating panels that conforms to the body. Materially efficient, it leverages the power of the web to design globally and distribute locally, slashing the carbon footprint.
