Velo Chair was the winning piece after the public was asked to choose its favourite student design  on Twitter. Inspired by the bicycle, the Velo Chair connects body and object by seamlessly wrapping itself around the user. Ash was selected for its flexibility, allowing the complex curves to be free-form laminated without breaking. The flexibility allows a more comfortable backrest which flexes and moulds around the sitter.
