With legs that echo the seat and back rest, Ehud Eldan’s all-wood ‘Bob’ chair expresses symmetry in both the visual and structural sense.

Made out of four identical molded plywood pieces, each piece was cut to a different form and covered with an Oak veneer sheet and then assembled together.

“The second model is a more industrial version.” says Eldan. “The seat and back rest are made from the same mold. It has four metal legs which are attached to the sides creating a floating sensation.”
