Design Brief

CONCEPT

Nowadays more people have pets and value them a lot.

People have a closer relationship with their pets. In this case, I think about the role of pets in our life. How to create a space for a person and his pet? How to present the concept of the interaction and the relationship between humans and pets by creating an object or space?

FORM DEVELOPMENT

When I was thinking of how to present an unstable but balance situation, the round shape crossed my mind. I tried to make an imageboard for swaying and balanced states.

I started with a circle side-view for my form develop-ment. I cut the circle into two parts and changed the proportion. After that, I changed several lines to make the whole shape coherent and also make it more suitable for sitting.

HUMAN FACTORS

When designing the chair, I research the information of the human body and the average dimension of chairs in general. During the design process, I used the 2D equal-ratio modeling on sketching the side-view to make sure the overall shape to be practical.

DIMENSION REVISION

I started with a circle side-view for my form development. I cut the circle into two parts and changed the proportion. After that, I changed several lines to make the whole shape coherent and also make it more suitable for sitting.

PROCESS

The main support of the chair is made of galvanized iron which is made into a 10mm-radius bar. After joining each bar, the semi-finished good was painted and solidified. The main material for the cushion is velvet, I cut the cloth into long strips and put the cotton into them to make it softer. After finishing all the strips, I made them intersect with each other to build a stronger structure.
