My design story
The final product
Apart from using technical drawings, images and gifs, I have also created animation videos. These help in visualizing the actual product at a different level as it gives an insight into the structure and construction of the model. Visual aid is always very important in any art project and the following videos will give life to my sit + store project.
Now that I have come to the realization part of the project, I have created a digital model to make understanding and visualizing my furniture design easier.
Before I started thinking about material application, I constructed the model with simple components which included both additive and subtractive elements. The modelling of the furniture was easy and quick as it includes repetitive units and a lot of stacking application.
This collage shows a perspective view of the model as well as the front and back. I also created a gif to aid with comparing both front and back of the model with ease.
The materials, as mentioned earlier, are wood, fabric and jute. All these are natural materials that provide a homely vibe while incorporating the modernistic simplicity of contemporary design.
As seen in the technical drawings, the furniture design also includes a swinging bench with enough room to swing without disruptance from surrounding elements.
Here is a collage of the model including shadow and material applications from different perspectives.
