Brife : Make a chair which is beautiful and has its meaning.
．Pendulum Rock Chair
THREE CONCEPTS OF 1:6 MODEL
My back ground is mechanical engineer, so I always start a project with a problem or function. In the concept 1, I wanted to make a rock chair with a indirect way of implied function of clock, but I failed to explan how this attempt infflunces the form of this chair.
The initiative reason for this chair is just because I like concrete. However, when I was making this concrete chair model, I accidentally shatterd it into pieces, so I have to glue them back together, and I found I really like that random break line. Afterwards, In a design class of IDE, a tutor quote a paragraph as below.
“Any material, whether natural or artificial, has specific properties that must be understood by those who use them. New materials and new construction methods are not necessarily superior.What matters is the way materials are handled. Each material only has a value for what may be obtained from it.”- Mies van der Rohe
Since I cannot answer tutors' challenge of the concept 1, I decided to force myself to go for second concept to learn from it, to learn how to make things from the reason other than solving a problem or create a function.
