The Velo Chair Uses A Single Piece Of Bent Wood As The Backrest – Design You Trust

The Velo Chair Uses A Single Piece Of Bent Wood As The Backrest


When British designer Jan Waterston was creating the Velo Chair, his inspiration came from cycling.

h/t: contemporist


Jan mentions, “The bicycle is an object in which the user can feel a seamless relationship to and subsequently the road. This relationship between body and object is echoed in bicycle design with tubes flowing seamlessly into one another, constantly changing shape, to improve function and aesthetic.”

The design of the Velo Chair is a response to modern bicycles and how they appear to wrap around the user, and his chair is no different.
