Five to Thirty Minute Chair


his is the AtFAB piece that started it all. When we offered the 5-30 Minute Chair for download, we wondered who if anyone might make it and how far it might go. Many years later, it has been locally fabricated by makers around the world, and provoked AtFAB’s reputation as “IKEA disruptor” and “iTunes for Furniture.” Its slightly awkward stance is the intentional expression of the way it is made. The chair was recently acquired by France’s Centre National des Arts Plastiques for their permanent collection and has been published and exhibited internationally.

he 5-30 Minute Chair download file includes toolpaths for a single side chair that fits on half of a 4′x8′x¾” sheet. A pair of chairs very efficiently nests onto a single sheet of material. Fasten each chair’s 10 interlocking parts with 30 screws or pegs to maximize your chair’s durability and longevity. You can further accessorize your chair with a 3D printed Peg & Foot Kit 3D, found at AtFAB’s Thingiverse page.
