School year was over, but not the eco chair.
I was changing my location to more greener place.
And more primitive working conditions – dad’s garage!
I made a mockup from something I could find there for testing dimensions, positions of the horizontal details, proportions & ergonomics. The mockup was totally adjustable, I liked it!
Somebody said that it looks like a new grilling machine…
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.
