PP5_Frame is a seating element that utilizes a two-way frame system to create a complex curved form. Although the structural geometry utilizes a simple, repetitive grid, each component is uniquely differentiated in order to create a dynamic, flowing form. The porosity of the material system produces a play between the physical sturdiness and the visual lightness of the seat.
