Three Chairs

Here are a few pictures of the chairs I’ve just finished making for a commission I’ve mentioned previously.

Commissioned Chairs

Thought i’d put up some images of the scale models I have been making for a commission.

I Upon completion of the two scale 1:10 models I placed them at the corresponding table model. It was clear straight away that there were dimension issues. The chairs seemed too big for the table. As an old country chair perhaps the size would have been ok, however in a modern environment against that table it did not sit well.

The table is quite large so the chairs needed to be adapted to sit in harmony with the table. I hoped to overcome this issue by reducing the chair size attempting to maintain its proportions. From here my colleague designing the table and I decided to produce larger scale (1:75) models. This was in the hope of clarifying the proportion issues.

From this model I realised that by removing the splay from the seat to reduce the size of the chair and reduce the complication of the joinery the chair lost its finesse.  It resulted in the chair looking bulky and bland, loosing its flow and invitation. (The photo is quite flattering though)

Thus there is much more designing required so enough blabber, it’s back to the drawing board.
