parametric seating part 1 – Hugging chair

hugging chair

I chose my previous design project for this assignment. This is a reading chair, designed for prolonged, relaxed use.its asymmetrical, curving wings enclose the user in a space that feels secure: one feels embraced by the chair, or perhaps held in a large hand. One feels almost taken care of by the chair. It’s a space that helps the user achieve a special level of calmness and relaxation.

I built a new digital model based on the original hand made prototype.

The five design drivers focus on proportion, curve, multi-thickness, texture and frame, to explore more possibilities of this chair design.
