The Disco Compacto Chair emerged from a desire to create something beautiful, unique, and sustainable that would challenge our relationship with furniture.

Dicco Compacto Chair
Drawing inspiration from highly functional design such as hydro towers, and from open-source functional design such as geodesic domes, the Disco Compacto chair responds to a desire to create something that could be easily built yet admired for its technical simplicity and visual complexity. Made from untreated birch wood and 3D printed PLA joints, the chair includes a foam seat cushion and stuffed back cushion with an additional support cushion upholstered in a pink chevron pattern cotton fabric.
Disco Compacto aimed to make something that was light, transparent, and beautiful, using elements that are easily disassembled, reused, or recycled.
Although there are many projects on the horizon, the Disco Compacto Chair is the first to go into a small 3D printed production. The Chair utilizes 3D printed joints and solid wood components to create a lightweight, modular, shippable furniture product with a low carbon footprint.
Disco Compacto is a modular furniture project based in Montreal Canada. Currently in an early fundraising/prototyping stage, Disco Compacto hopes to address the problems of assembly, delivery, and waste when it comes to home furniture.
