When I had a drawing, I wanted to try something real in scale 1:1 – where I can sit & test dimensions and angles. There was only 1 week left until the end of the study year. Wood workshop masters suggested me to try turning the wood instead of mockup. So, I did.
This was the amount of solid birch needed.
Tuning using the turning-copy machine.
Turned details for the chair. My first experience in doing this!
Innovative way, how to connect details – tape! Ok, I just wanted to check the dimensions without spoiling details…
To demonstrate the system I made scale models 1:5 I enjoyed so much choosing colours at the art shop and painting wooden pieces. Probably my backround of Riga School of Art and Design is the reason.
For having as much as close impression to the real sofa, I made a mock-up in scale 1:1. The metal parts are made of the steel – as they are supposed to be for the real sofa, but the upholstered parts are board boxes. Even if it is not very comfortable, it really gives a feeling of the real dimensions and I am satisfied with the result & hope some day to test the soft version!
