Surface Chair

An exploration of the relationship between interrelated surfaces, especially in the context of the body and its interaction with these surfaces. By using the resting body as a guide to define an initial surface and then developing a second surface by projection from key vertices of the first, I seek to confront the physical realities of the latter as a “chair”. How is the sitting experience informed by both the structure of the original surface and the initial body-surface relationship that defined it?

Chair designed and constructed for Jesse Reiser’s F’13 studio at the Princeton University School of Architecture. View hi-res PDF here.
