Two Curves Chair
Designed, Prototyped, and constructed a full-sized chair in collaboration with one other student. Conceptual design is inspired by the typical comfort curve for a lounge chair illustrated by Alan Marks in "On Making Chairs Comfortable". It is designed from two curves, one supporting the shoulders and rump, the other supporting the lumbar and thighs. These curves are repeated as slats to create a smooth, comfortable surface. Design supports a CAM, milled format, so that each piece can be milled from a flat sheet of plywood using a 3-axis mill (Techno-CNC).
