Chair Day Project-
During the final stage of my graphic design degree, I devised an interesting and totally original study that encompasses my passion of sustainable culture, in particular recycling materials, my obsession with chairs and working with solid form.
It was my intention throughout this project to connect both my skills of manufacturing and carpentry, with my current practice: graphic design. I wanted to interlink the two, as my interests lay largely with working with solid-form, such as furniture and how I can translate this through design.
I had set my self the challenge to bring unloved and undernourished chairs back into this world, and give them a new lease of life. By finding chairs around my local area, each week I had collected a selection and devised a way to merge the chairs together.
Using my vast collection of tools and my bedroom as a workshop, I recorded the process of recreating the chair and making functional, yet strange chair-like objects.
