I was in my doctors office the other week and he had a chair in there that I liked the look of. I asked him about it and he told me it was a “Barcelona chair”. The next time he was there he let me take some measurements so now I have a pretty detailed knowledge of the physical aspects of the chair. Here is a link to it:
The question I have for you guys and gals is:
1) Do you think it could be made from wood with a bent lamination technique and if so what wood(s) would be appropriate?
2) Any ideas as to how to strengthen the part that will take most of the pressure which I think is the place that the two main pieces intersect?
3) Does anyone have any suggestions where I could get inexpensive but good looking leather cushions to use for the seat and the back
Any other suggestions are most welcome.
I think this would be a most challenging and unique (at least in wood anyway) project.
