The top edge of the chair has been an experiment with precompressed wood - how far can a plane piece of elm be forced? Is it possible to create a double curved top edge out of a solid piece of plane wood - and still maintain a good comfort for both back and arms? In that case it would be possible to avoid the glue pot and to save a lot of wood, and the fact that the wood can manage on its own is also very agreeable from an aesthetic point of view. In the construction of the chair is used as little wood as possible. All the curved subjects are bended out of precompressed wood - straight pieces of wood.
