Woodscales for Herman Miller
Instead of moulding plywood on a large scale, this envelope for Herman Miller Shop-in-Shop was a lightweight plywood grid shell structure formed simply by piecing
together a series of modulated plywood panels. Designing the entire skin out of a kit of parts, demanded a certain ease in assembly.
A special interlocking lap joint was designed to attach modular panels together to form a larger surface. The joints were laid over a triangular grid which determined the geometrical relationship between the panels. The final modular 3-legged triangular panels were “stitched” together with a slight rotating motion.
