Guys this quote by NY-NY is very important today:
Fib's formula inspiration came from a conceptual cabinet I saw at "Because we can". which enforces my theory of prototyping your work in CAD prior to fabrication. Top notch final render.
Big changes today in "the craft"....... its not your fathers craft---- paraphrase Alfred Sloan I guess.
Another good one going NY-NY!!!!!...... I'm not sure exactly how to view the last render. I get Fibnonacci but I need guidance in applying it to your visual....Thanks!
using the front elevation of the credenza as a starting point. the second drawer front at the top left side, upper right hand corner. follow that reveal line down, when you get to the center of the drawer front turn right, follow that reveal line over to the end of the two rectangular larger drawer fronts, follow that reveal line to the bottom of the drawer front, turn left and follow that reveal line to the start of the radius follow that reveal line down, that's the rough out line of my chair, with the exception of a line from the starting drawer front center down to the top of the bottom drawer front.
Once I had a wire frame outline i added 1 -1/2 to the line, then using standard numbers regarding chair specs, (seat height, width, depth ect...) I was left with rectangles and squares, fib's formula was used to get a well proportioned golden rectangles
The only aspect that didn't work was the seat height, hence the stand-offs to elevate it to standard seat height. It has potential both in the contract furnishing environment and residential. For contract application the box would be solid and no pouch in the back.
I like chair #2 as well.
The door for the storage box could fold down maybe?
Great point about using CAD!!! I couldn't agree more.
Even rendering in sketch up is great for those who are looking for an easy start into drawing your project/prototype before you set off building.
The program NY uses is very cool. If I had the extra coin for it I would.......maybe sometime this year!
Here is an example chair that was designed(not my design) in SketchChair and I cut out on the cnc from 12mm birch ply. They are still working on the program but once its done it will be a free program.
The door does fold down in the back.
Nice chair , I like the interlocking design stuff. If your going to experiment with that kind of design have a look at the attached link, possibilities are endless.http://www.drill-design.com/gohan/http://www.fullswing-furniture.com/index.html
Who'd a thunk it,....... craft paper.
That credenza is pretty cool looking.
chair 2 doesn't do it for me at all. though I do like the newspaper/magazine storage behind the seat.
Your a tough one but I'll get one you like sooner or later
What is it about #2 that you don't like. consumer feedback is important.
