Close ties

Keeping it simple: The Almohadilla Chair is consists of nothing more than six wooden planes and cable ties.

In terms of design excellence, cable ties are much like paper clips: humble, hard working and exactly fit for purpose.

In fact, cable ties are so strong and so versatile that Spanish design studio Cuatro Cuatros used these nifty little instruments in the design of their Almohadilla Chair.

Taking a very minimalist approach, the Almohadilla Chair consists of six pre-cut wooden boards, perpendicularly assembled and held together with nylon paper ties.

The real joy comes when you want to stack the chair away or transport I because you simply need to cut the cable ties.
