Ready Bean Chair is a bean bag chair with a bent laminated wooden seat imposed on it to create a fixed structure. I was attracted to the idea of the amorphous blob that can be anything, take any form you need, in a very low tech way. This led me to the idea of an 'instant chair' made by punching rigid frames into the blob, 'pre-forming' it into an upholstered seat and back. At the same time, the chair frame negates the function of the beanbag by providing support in areas that conventional beanbag chairs do not.
