The initial purpose of the project is to create an alternative way of stacking system for the context, though the chair "Risti" is composed of typical components, solid wood construction and laminated veneer seat. The wooden cross frame was applied to compose its construction by thin leg materials, in order to give a delicate and light weight aesthetic. The chair allows the stacking one vertically over another, which provides excellent stability for the stacking.
