Modern Lounge Chair

This week, we decided to put our design and engineering skills to the test by building a wooden live hinge lounge chair. The chair is made from 3/4" plywood and has walnut end caps. We used a technique called live hinge, where you take out material in a uniform pattern, which allows the plywood to compress and then bend.

I have been a woodworker for many years but admittedly I have never cut a living hinge from plywood. Am I missing something here? There seems to be no symmetry whatsoever, other than the Y coordinate. Not all of the rectangles are the same size. The pattern just looks off.
