A Chair by CANADIAN WOODWORKS
CANADIAN WOODWORKS has sent us images of A Chair.
Description from the CANADIAN WOODWORKS:
This chair is a very interesting and unique design, when you sit in it you feel free and very comfortable. Perfect for sitting down with some friends to play some guitar but also fits right in around a board room table. We’ve been able to sculpt this design into our own by deciding to attach the front leg to the seat using a true Maloof joint, this adds strength and beautiful fair transitions.

Junya Ishigami guest of honour of the Design Biennale INTERIEUR 2010, is awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale for Architecture. One of the results of his work made for Living Divani is Family Chair, a collection of 5 steel chairs with a remarkable magnified optical effect, for light objects, practical in their harmony.
Junya Ishigami tell that “Chairs that live in harmony, like a family. Whilst they are all similar, each chair has a slightly different shape, and its own personality. There is a wide chair, a tall chair, a short chair, a normal chair and a stool. It’s fun to choose which chair to sit on, depending on the day’s mood. Like a family sitting around a table, so the chairs are arranged around the table.”
The structure of the chairs is in 12 mm tubular steel, curved using a numeric control machine, and 15 mm tubular steel legs welded together using internal reinforcement. The seat mesh is in 3 mm steel wire with a 40×40 mm diagonal weave, individually rolled for each seat. Finished with epoxy paint in the colors given in the catalogue, or electro-coated in the outdoor version. [Via]

The Splash Lounge is made from Sculpey clay at 1/8th inch scale, the model was then cut up into 1/4 inch slices, scanned, blown up to full size plotted and served as templates for the full scale model. The form itself is made of pink insulation foam coated in Elmer’s Glue. A fiberglass skin, covered in Bondo and white high-gloss epoxy give the Splash it’s milky glow. [Via]
