MOWO

MOWO ERGONOMIC CHAIR COLLECTION MADE WITH MODULAR MATERIAL THAT CAN BE CONFIGURATED IN DIFFERENT WAYS

The project

The MOWO, move with wood collection was inspired by the idea to create soft and elastic seats out of wood. After testing different techniques European birch plywood was chosen for its high bending strength. The work explores two different pathways. A family of stools, fun objects for everyday use from desk work till dining, allow tilting and twisting movements. ‘Aera’ presents a woven plywood structure, adaptable to the body’s weight and shape by allowing smaller deformations within its volume. The unexpected sprung reaction of the plywood seats supports the users natural balance and fulfils the body’s need for movement.
