Morgan Mcbratney's Xylo Chair

Morgan Mcbratney Designs The Xylo Chair

Morgan McBratney, the designer of the awarded work Xylo by Morgan McBratney explains, Aside from the obvious grace and flow the Xylo Chair provides, the ease of production from a single sheet of plywood via CNC machining and cost of manufacture are key factors. Extensive research into structure and ergonomics were also extremely influential. The use of the plywood on the end grain gives substantial strength while still maintaining flexibility and the subtle curves hug the body with unusual accuracy to make this chair as comfortable as it is beautiful..
