From the initial sketches the intention was to create a solid wood structure taking inspiration from a spinal column, a structure which would support a light sheet of plywood. Starting from a classical solid wood structure and working on the shape to give it strength and resistance as a chair, the design incrementally became more contemporary creating an aesthetic similar to a stylized giraffe more than a spinal column.
