The Zig Zag Chair may seem like a typical wooden seat, until the viewer looks a little closer at the details. In place of traditional wooden strips that are used to form the backrest and seat surface, this chair boasts a single sheet of thin plywood that has been beautifully cut to create the zigzagging pattern it was named after.

Conceived and created by Randy Weersing, an industrial designer based in Eugene, Oregon, the Zig Zag Chair is specifically crafted out of three pieces of high grade maple plywood. While one forms the seat, the other two have been shaped into sculptural legs. Light, strong, and ergonomically comfortable, the Zig Zag Chair is as functional as it is aesthetically appealing. The minimalist look will complement any setting.
