eco chair 10

After my little ugly models, I felt stacked.

From my previous experiences I know, that in such a cases nothing really helps as just to make whatever crap.

Just to orientate my own thinking about an issue.

Learning by doing again & nothing else helps.

So I made something to understand the STRUCTURE of the Vidzemes krēsls (Vidzeme chair).

This is  like a little skeleton of the chair. Just for having a TANGIBLE  structure of it.

And – thiese coctail-straws are recycled from other scale model, in case somebody thinks, I am doind non-ecological scale model for eco chair.
