The Occasion Chair 2012 - Second semester school assignment in 1:1 architecture. Duration: 1 week. A chair for short breaks in small spaces. Idea To make a chair for people who live in apartment and which to sit outside in the sun but have to use the sidewalk. The chair has to take up as little space as possible when not in use. Background In my old appartement we used to drink coffee outside in the sun on the sidewalk. We used to bring down old garden chairs, but they took up the entire sidewalk and weren't stable on the uneaven sidewalk. Eventually we stopped bringing chairs. Process I worked with the principle that the chair had to be light, simple and unpretentious. I thought that two legs should be enough, you could lean against the wall to increse stability. The two legs also fixed the problem with the uneven sidewalk. It proved stable enough to sit without leaning against the wall. Construction A simple construction that consists of eight parts and needs only a standard plank 1.5 meter in length. Glued. Can be manufatured by CNC if needed. Awarded The chair was awarded at the 2012 FSC-competition for sustainable wooden design Read Less

The Occasion Chair

2012 - Second semester school assignment in 1:1 architecture. Duration: 1 week.

A chair for short breaks in small spaces.


Idea
To make a chair for people who live in apartment and which to sit outside in the sun but have to use the sidewalk. The chair has to take up as little space as possible when not in use.

Background
In my old appartement we used to drink coffee outside in the sun on the sidewalk. We used to bring down old garden chairs, but they took up the entire sidewalk and weren't stable on the uneaven sidewalk. Eventually we stopped bringing chairs.

Process
I worked with the principle that the chair had to be light, simple and unpretentious. I thought that two legs should be enough, you could lean against the wall to increse stability. The two legs also fixed the problem with the uneven sidewalk. It proved stable enough to sit without leaning against the wall.

Construction
A simple construction that consists of eight parts and needs only a standard plank 1.5 meter in length. Glued. Can be manufatured by CNC if needed.

Awarded
The chair was awarded at the 2012 FSC-competition for sustainable wooden design
