Student Work: Furniture Design

Chair Design
The restrictions for this project was the amount of material that could be used, we were allowed to only use 15 sheets of MDF of 49" W x 97" H x 1/4" thick each. The instructor made this a contest, the best 2 chairs were going to be produced, mine wasn't elected :( but hey, I still had fun.

My inspiration was the female body shape, I believe it is the most perfect shape on this planet (I'm just saying the truth.) I started making several hand sketches, and finally found the shape I liked the most. I trace it on CAD and made a 3D model. This chaise lounge chair is made out of 45 serial sections; I called it M as in "Mujer" = Women in Spanish, and also because of its shape.

I used this same chair for my modeling class, I just redesign the back of it and made it curvy. I had to make a paper model to scale, and a magazine advertisement, I think it turned out great! I love the shape, it looks so sexy :)
