Students and city dwellers make a series of compromises because of the limited space they have in their apartments. Due to how large lounge chairs usually are, there is a lack of dedicated reading space that properly supports the body. This results in extended reading hunched over a work desk or in various uncomfortable positions on the bed. The goal of the Plylounge is to create a compact, ergonomic lounge chair that comfortably supports an adult within a limited space. The design uses minimal amounts of plywood so that it is light enough to move into and around the space, yet strong enough to support the body . The chair is constructed from only 4 pieces of wood. When it reaches the end of its life, it can be easily deconstructed and recycled.
