The ski chair is inspired through two disciplines, being downhill skiing and ski jumping.
Investigative drawing and sketching helped to create graphical abstractions of these activities.
The interaction of skis cutting through powdery snow intrigued me.
I was also interested in the change in body posture of the ski jumper and their anticipation, the cusp of the slope.
Springing out into a jump from tension to gain the furthest distance.
These contrasts inspired me to realize such through the materiality of the ski chair. It seemed obvious to me that I should combine wood, steel, and fabric into a finalized furniture product.
