One of the projects we are currently working on in Design II Class is our Cardboard Chair project. We did a lot of sketches of designs:
At first I was stuck on this idea:
I moved on to...tiny chairs out of paper:
(FYI the warped look is courtesy of my putting it under my wearable art project prior to taking a photo) Thought I would make that last one, but the teacher vetoed it very quickly, stating that she did not think it had enough structure to support a persons weight. So, more sketching.. more wanting to die at the thought of this project... I came up with this one:
The teacher approved so I moved on to the quarter size chair out of mat board:
And here is the finished product - the quarter size chair:
Isn't it a cute little chair?
Next up, the half size chair made of cardboard. It will have to hold about 100 lbs in order to pass the test so we can go to the full size model. Once I get that one finished I will post about it!
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!
