Armchair Camouflage is a low armchair made from OSB. The material is surfaced with a black-stained veneer, and has oversized lateral panels that partly hide the user. These panels feature a carved camouflage pattern that emphasizes the trench-like character of the piece, but at the same time exposes the OSB beneath. Like a window of truth, the carved texture exposes the pretensions of furniture manufacturers when they veneer particleboards with seemingly elegant wood textures.

Engineered wood boards are generally a better choice in environmental terms because a larger proportion of the tree wood ends up in the finished product and they’re made from fast-growing, harvested softwood forests. OSB is particularly good in these terms, as it can be made with certified wood and uses a very large percentage of the tree in its manufacture. Camouflage values these materials for their environmental and aesthetic particularities.
