For his graduate thesis project, Justin Crocker (M.I.D. '14) created a chair using a three-dimensional structural weaving technique he developed with the help of digital tools.
He initially tested the technique by creating a series of small woven paper samples before moving on to working with the plywood and leather. He then created a number of prototypes to help refine the design of the chair before creating the final piece.
The chair was shown at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City in May 2014.
