Chair Project by Danielle Wilson, Grant Russell & Jan Hajek
Year 2 Architecture

This dinning chair was designed for somebody who appreciates different textures of materials; in this case it is wood. The back of the chair was burned in order to achieve organic and rough texture. This charred, black and robust part of the chair transforms into contrasting, light, sharp and geometrical shape which serves as the seat. Although the chair has two completely different appearances from each side, it is made out of one type of light timber planks which are put together with biscuit joints. We were focused on craft and simplicity. The back of the chair was bended regarding the stability and comfortable angle. This was the biggest challenge that we solved by using steam.
