Designed in conjunction with the "One Good Chair" program, which Lance organized three years in a row for the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
Many of the most popular modern chairs are both wasteful and uncomfortable. The SIT/SET series seeks another model by combining material efficiency and human comfort. A series of studies of bent bamboo plywood pieces that can serve as both seat and table, the designs seek to use the entirety of 4X8 sheets to avoid waste. Many “ergonomic” chairs are misguided because they do not take into account the wide variety of body types and sizes. The back of the chair can lead to poor posture and body health. As an alternative to the backed chair, a stool can promote greater back strength over time. The SIT/SET shape supports the spine and promotes blood flow in order to optimize comfort in a relatively simple, lightweight stool.
