The Echo line ¬†of furniture from Forest City Fabricators is comprised of laterally stacked, CNC-cut plywood profiles. In collaboration with Forest City’s John Arthur, I designed and produced fabrication documents for the newest additions to the line, the Lounge and Rock chairs.

Analysis of the structural forces at play in each chair allowed me to judiciously cut voids from the interior of each chair’s profile, making the chairs 35% lighter without sacrificing rigidity, strength or durability.
