Inspired by the delicate legs of a deer, the Deer series consists of a dining chair, an armless chair, and a bar stool (also with armless version). These pieces are one of the studio’s early archetype explorations, deeper dives into particular product typologies, one by one, and a paring away of everything superfluous through an Autoban lens. Deer was developed at a time when the studio was working with plywood, partly for its high strength- and stiffness-to-weight ratios. At that point, CNC milling technology was new to Turkey; Deer’s two side frames (its legs and arms) were milled from sheets of plywood to form the structure of the piece as a whole.
