leanChair Prototype

This is a prototype I built for Ramak International. 

leanChair is a simple chair/desk set for students in third world countries, built by local carpenters and sourced from local materials. The design of leanChair was prompted by the need for a straightforward, template-based approach, with only mechanical and glue connections. The design, and structural stability of the set targets local carpenters’ experience, availability of basic tools and a universal approach to woodworking. The set forgoes screws for simple dowel connections. The set could be replicated easily and will work with plywoods, hardwoods, and or a combination of both. The table top and desk top are similar in dimensions. The legs are tapered to allow for a more compact storage if needed.
