Seungji Mun created a simple shaped chair that is designed to minimize industrial waste. The Economical Chair’s design is such that during production of four chairs per 4′ x 8′ international standard plywood sheet there is absolutely zero waste.

Once the design is cut, the shapes are achieved through a plywood bending technique to get the curves of the seat and the bends of the legs.
