During sketching the scissor frame was investigated as it would give the chair the desired freedom. However this frame encountered some challenges in the construction.
These images show prototypes at different scales, that were helpful in defining the chair’s final dimensions.

Brief // This course took us on a journey through the design history of the chair. Tectonic and construction methods were examined throughout the prototyping. The end product was to be a usable chair crafted in peachpine.

The idea behind the “No Biggie” chair was to create an armchair, which was compact in dimensions and appearance, but was experienced as a big and friendly chair when used. I worked on how to create a visual difference between the supporting and the supported elements.
