Alpha Stacking Chair

Designing efficiently stacking church seating

Churches are dynamic meeting places that demand accessible use of space; single seat chairs are becoming more popular than the traditional pews so the design of a lightweight, wooden, and cost effective stacking chair is desirable. The newly designed Alpha stacking chair has been designed and developed to incorporate key anthropometric data to optimise comfort and afford good posture. The selling point of this chair is its stacking ability; weighing approximately 5.5kg and stacking up to 40 chairs high in under 1.9 metres, the chair is proposed to be manufactured using birch plywood. The fabric shelf provides every chair with temporary and convenient book storage without compromising compact stacking.
