Plywood isn't the most comfortable material for sitting or lying on but it's likely to create it comfier. How? Designer Phebos Xenakis understands the way to do this.
The Karekla (Greek for'chair') applies a neat trick to make plywood literally bend to your demands. Having a run of vertical cuts along with a support in the base, the Karekla looks flat until you sit on it, and when you do, takes the shape of your buttocks as it stinks along with your weight.
Designed using waste wooden plywood pieces, the Karelka chair looks straightforward but"succumbs to the weight of the user and create a comfortable seating". The minute you stand up, the wooden ply reverts to its initial shape, bringing a nifty shape-memory feature to plywood, making the seat not only durable, but comfortable too.
In order to make sure the plywood doesn't bend too much, a curved support in the base acts as a break for individual vertical plywood members. It's not surprising that with these advantages the Karekla is a winner of the A' Design Award for the year 2018.
