According to Carlos Ortega, his Gap chair gets its name from the spaces needed to stabilize its wooden structure as well as from the border between indoors and outdoors (it works in both).

Says Ortega, "All components are mechanized using CNC technology. The traditional mortise and tenon structure is held together by means of screws instead of glues that wouldn't resist an extreme exterior use."


"Gap optimizes material: it uses just 0.016 square meter from the thinnest sawn boards normally available. The one you see here is made of american oak and finished with natural hard-wearing oils."
