Rocket Chair, 2018
Mac Nordman intended to design a modern take on the famous egg chair, primarily using triangulated plywood. During prototyping he ended up with a rocket shaped main body and fins for a support stand, he therefore named it the Rocket Chair. It is innovative in being the first triangulated ply chair inspired by the classic egg chair.
