Developed as the subject of Alan's Master's thesis, the Autumn chair is designed specifically for the ambulatory elderly.  Many features of these solid wood chairs assist in the ingress and egress as well as comfort for the user.  Utilizing the CNC equipment at Georgia Tech's Advanced Wood Products Lab, 23 units of the chairs were created.
