Description

The Twist Chair continues the material operation, or investigation into material behavior, that first yielded the Winnipeg Skating Shelters. A single piece of two-layer birch plywood is twisted in accordance with its grain to form a dynamic and elegant shell. At the point of highest bending stress, a precise cutout prevents the wood from splitting. Steel hairpin legs support the shell to achieve a lightweight, agile appearance.


Twist Chairs are available to order from Nienkamper. For information on purchasing, please visit https://www.nienkamper.com/product/patkau-twist.
