Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner has combined wood bending and moulding techniques to create a chair for Czech furniture brand TON.

Sections are curved into shape by clamping cylindrical wooden poles in metal moulds at the same factory that Thonet's iconic bent-wood chairs were made.

The moulded-wood seat shells are supported underneath by two braces, which also connect the legs.

Three poles form the legs and back support for the seat, with the option of adding a fourth rod with six kinks that wraps round the chair to form armrests.

Feichtner's chairs were named for their likeness to the plastic seats on the trams in Prague.

Finishes available include dark, natural or white in a range of woods, with potential to add cloth or leather upholstery.
