Two versions of ROLU
Studio's + Chairs:
Plywood, above, OSB,

Rosenlof/Lucas (ROLU) Design and Art Studio of Minneapolis, MN, Minnesota, has taken a plain and simple approach to the design and construct of furniture.

Check out the accompanying photos of an identical dining chair -- one made from oriented strand board (OSB) and the other from exterior-grade plywood. Either way, ROLU calls it the + Chair. It's billed on the studio's website as "comfortable and clear." It would be hard to dispute the clear part, as for comfortable, it's harder to say based only on an Internet photo.

Other OSB and plywood constructed furniture produced by ROLU Design Studio include the Cube Chair, Box Chair Triangle
                                            Chair and Cube Table.
