Kerf - folding stool chair
Furniture
KERF is space saving chair that you can put it on a hanger and store it like clothing in wardrobe. it is always ready for quick set up to serve incoming friends and family. 
intentions are to enrich plywood, make it flexible and fold it like paper origami
designed for practical people who are living in small spaces.

it is named after kerfing technique; its inspired by and optimized for the CNC milling process to save production time and cost.
Inspiration moodboard: Bending plywood with kerfing method, Flat-pack lasercut furniture, folding chairs and interlocking leather belt
kerfing is a great technique of bending plywood by patterned cutting once for desired curvature, but not suitable for repetitivelong term bending as it would cause the veneer layer to crack. So I decided to use thick leather instead, as it can withstand repetitive bending cycles and act as hinge that can last for a long time.
