Cascade

flat pack lounger

The Cascade lounge chair breaks the paradigm of conventional flat pack furniture that subjects its users to an uncomfortable sitting plane. The Cascade combines the comfort of a hammock in its sitting surface with a strong and easy to assemble plywood frame. 

It took several iterations of sketch modeling to arrive at a form that was both comfortable and structurally sound. With each model, dimensions or materials were changed to ensure a supreme user experience. Each successive draft not only improved the structure, but also refined the form to create the most striking and aesthetically exiting shape.

The Cascade uses a series of slotted sections to provide sound sturctural support. The asslembly is intuituve and requires no fateners or tool use.
