The MONROE Chair is an exploration of form and function through repetition. It uses 82 identically CNC batch-produced components which swivel around a central axis in order to create a complexly curved and comfortable armchair. The challenge was to create one flat shape that contains the four main elements of an armchair as the back leg gradually morphs into the backrest and the armrest into the front leg. Creating a distinct aesthetic entirely defined by the simplicity of the manufacturing process and the complexity of the initial idea. Named MONROE after its striking resemblance to Marilyn Monroe’s white pleated dress as she steps over the subway grate in NYC.
