Built from 618 individually cut pieces of Baltic Birch plywood cut out with a CNC machine, the elegant, modern armchair has vinyl upholstery and a simple yet effective shape. Designed by Judson Beaumont of Straight Line Designs Inc., this amazing armchair beautifies with its shape and allows further embellishments thanks to its hollow arms and space under the seat. Comfortable and helpful in any situation, the armchair is one of the many interesting creations constructed by the talented designer, some you might have seen here on our site, like the Little Black Dresser. Found on DesignRulz, the fantastic Hollow Armchair can accommodate a varied number of items, from books and toys to spa towels or anything else you can think of, so it could adorn any commercial, residential or social space. The designer explains the inspiration and use of the Hollow Chair: “This chair was designed to remove the excess bulk and 3-dimensional footprint out of a traditional arm chair. The chair, by itself, is a perfect accent to nearly any environment you could place it in.”
