Reshaping tradition

Undergraduate students, studying Product development with Furniture design at School of Engineering at Jönköping University is showing their latest project.

The project was to start from the construction principle of the Stick back chair and see what that could be developed into. This chair construction principle originates from many places in the world, since it is very simple. You make a seat, then you put in legs in the bottom side and backrest in the top. These kind of chairs have therefore been invented everywhere there are wood resources. Sweden have a rich history of stick back chairs. The furniture as well as the exhibition has been ideated, developed, prototyped and constructed by the students themselves.
