Voluntary project at a charity: restoring an old chest of drawers, from its shabby old worn-state to a gleaming piece of respectable interior design.
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 produced an array of various outcomes, ranging from posters, film documentary, a publication of the entire process and the restored piece of furniture its self.
Chair day project
During the course of my study into all things wasted, discarded and deemed useless. I have been exploring the many ways that waste products, such as furniture can be reused, either as fully functional pieces of everyday life, or as abstract pieces of art, highlighting the issue of the throw away culture and how found materials can be utilized in an efficient manner.
I have been focusing my attention on a particular object that is regarded as one of the most useful forms, and has been creatively developed over the past one hundred years. But in the same instants, discarded and thrown away with out any hesitation; the chair.
