DIY furniture is often very complicated to assemble, made of cheap materials (such as particle board), and requires lots of hardware and tools to be put together.

The Squish Chair is a furniture design that explored how far I could push ready-to-assemble furniture without using tools and hardware to put the design together, focusing on compression and tension as the only structural connection method. 

When sat on, the chair's legs compress into the cushioned seat and becomes structurally sound when weight is evenly applied. 

Both the two legs and back piece are made of a single rod of steel, bent on the Diacro and utilizing only a single weld each. Each leg contains ten bends, while the back piece contains fourteen.
