Five Pieces of Wood is a portable chair that is assembled with a tenon-and-mortise system. The surface of the seat is made of sackcloth to increase comfort. The horizontal support in the middle of the chair plays a very important role. It not only connects the front and rear legs but also locks the overall structure through the latch at the end. To disassemble the chair, simply remove the latch—no tools needed. The chair can also be stacked for space-efficient storage.
