When technical and mechanical problems incubating in one’s mind for so long are solved, the final steps to completing a concept comes within grasp.

Laminated slats of ipil and molave took the shape of the seat and the back rest. The back’s pitch can be adjusted to 5 settings. The the base is made from molave, the seat bracket support at the bottom and the adjuster bracket are all dungon (iron wood). Crown are saplungan while all locking keys are ebony.
