The Ski Chair (2011-13,'17)

Updated: Apr 6


GLADSTONE DESIGN PRIZE 2012


1:5 MATERIAL MODEL

The ski chair is inspired through two disciplines, being downhill skiing and ski jumping.

ITERATIVE SKETCH DEVELOPMENT

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.


EXPLODED ISOMETRIC

It seemed obvious to me that I should combine wood, steel, and fabric into a finalized product.
