Floating Back Armchair and Ottoman

solid walnut / upholstery
24” x 28” x 33”

This chair is an experiment of the structural integrity of wood joinery. The back of this armchair floats seemingly with little support from the base of the chair. The only connection is through the armrests - a thin piece of walnut joined to the base with a mortise and tenon joint. Although it appears fragile, the structure is solid.
