The PANO Chair utilizes the single sheet of ply wood it is cut from nearly to completion. The single board is cut using a high powered water jet. The pieces, once popped out, fit together without the aid of glue, screws, or nails using lever force, wedge methods, and flexed surfaces that secure one another. Studio Lo specializes in innovative uses of materials to craft decorative objects for everyday use with minimal waste. The use their principle of "share cut," meaning that one cut can be the edge for two useful pieces. At times this appears to leave unnecessary or strange angles but the finished product looks decorative and appropriate.
