Scrap Facet Chair by thinkk studio

When we first came across this chair, we were immediately struck by the rough-hewn nature of the back of the chair and it's contrast with the smooth angular nature of the rest. Designed by thinkk studio out of Thailand, the idea is that while the majority of the chair can be mass produced, each chair would have a section uniquely its own.

Built with beech wood and an aluminum seat, the highlight of the chair is the scrap wood that makes each chair special. According to thinkk studio:

We have seen used wood designs in the market. But, the unique selling points and basic ideas of this chair are to add emotional values to a new chair with used wood, allowing the chairs which are industrially produced to become an artwork and a design of Limited Edition in reasonable price. With unique characteristics on the wood material and its individual details of texture and color, this product therefore responds to the needs of the market nowadays where consumers demand for unique products to reflect their personalities.
We are anxious to see this chair for sell in the States so we can see what that "reasonable price" might be.
