Kerf Chair

The Kerf Chair, pushes the design boundaries for on-demand CNC machining.

The kerfing technique - milling a series of closely-spaced grooves into a sheet to allow it to bend - is employed to achieve an effect usually associated with the steam-bending of plywood. Kerfing helps avoid the complex process of steaming and pressing sheets of wood onto a bending mould and clamping it all together - in fact, the frame of the chair itself is used as a mould, and adds structural integrity to the final piece.

What makes the Kerf Chair different?

The Kerf Chair is designed to be manufactured by a network of independent makers all around the world. This is possible thanks to Opendesk’s alternative supply chain - designers share designs for products that can be downloaded and made locally using the latest digital tools.

We call this model ‘Open Making’.
