A two-dimensional sheet of Corian is cut out and then thermoformed into the shape of a chair shell, the deformation process results in a three-dimensional structure with the characteristic stretched holes. 
Watson's chair enjoys the appeal of intelligence, the constructive logic of obtaining the most out of the minimum material.

But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
