Sorry about that but I think a chair like this is just an artistic excercise, the old form over function argument & I would say although intriguing & possibly an adornment, it would have practical strength & comfort issues long term. So the answer to my previous response would be because we could & although I could I Wouldn’t

By the way it would have to be built up laminations with the inside formed out of bendy ply as Fussy said the only problem wit bendy ply is when you buy it you choose which direction is bendy, across the grain or with it, one direction is only slightly softer than normal ply the other is quite floppy so it would have to be cut into narrow strips & built up like a “Carvel” planked boat. If you have seen that 50’s & 60’s Scandinavian plywood formed furniture that was done with a mould pressing the individual veneer leaves of the ply into that shape whilst gluing
