It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a laser and 254 cut and glued plywood layers. Designer Mathias Bengsston says:
This arm chair explores the process of sculpting a 3-D form to produce furniture from a stack of flat sheets.
The form is modeled by hand then digitized by a computer, then sliced. The resulting shape of each slice is mapped onto an aluminum, corrugated cardboard or plywood sheet, which is cut accordingly. When the stack is re-assembled, a chair is formed, looking like a kind of symmetrical erosion.
