This barrel-shaped armchair is composed of 37 parts, each fitting into the other with pinpoint precision. The base and the chair back are constructed from three pieces of solid wood, bent at a different angles. Each of the three pieces is then cut in two to counterbalance the tensions created during the steam-bending and the drying processes. The two parts are then placed back-to-back and glued together. The joints are all carved directly into the wood, all the details are hand-finished by highly skilled carpenters.
