CNC Chair

A refined, minimal armchair manufactured on a 3 axis CNC routing machine.

Designed in response to extensive dissertation research exploring the relationship between cutting edge digital manufacturing and the unbroken, but potentially threatened, line of knowledge that exists within the tradition of craftsmanship. As we enter an age of digital dominance, how do we keep the warmth and material sensitivity of craftsmanship alive in an object? The character of hand crafted objects cannot be lost, but a progressive culture must also embrace change and opportunity, which in turn poses questions about how furniture should look as we move further in to the digital age.

Made with solid ash and ash veneer.
