At left, low, parabolic chair with initial outline in brown and final lines and shading in black; composed of single piece of plastic with seat depth greater than back height. On either side, arches of negative space while at front and rear, material extends to ground. At right, smaller perspective shows similar design with different proportions: seat is shallower and arches on sides taller and shallower. Stapled to other designs.
