Gis Chair by Sepehr Mehrdadfar

Home > Winners > #105645


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Gis

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Gis has odd yet familiar visual qualities. That is why it steals the spotlight and sets its own place. The main leg's dainty form is inspired by a girl's ponytail; the premise from which the chair takes its name from. In Farsi, "Gis" means the tumble of a woman’s hair.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Gis is a three-legged wooden chair with bronze feet and is carved out from two walnut logs with exquisite craftsmanship to seem as a sculpture. The wood knots and scars are remained exposed to give the objects a special characteristic. Despite its uncanny appearance, Gis is ergonomic due to the careful design of curves and angles. The design is an exploration of solid wood possibilities and also is a walk on the edge of "Art" and "Design", "Beauty" and "Function".

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Gis has sculptural qualities in its presence in the interior space. This chair is designed with an artistic approach in design to be a "good chair" and also an elegence piece of "art".

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in March 2019 and finished in September 2019 in Tehran, Iran and was exhibited as a part of "Konj-e-Hess" exhibition.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This chair is a part of the Konj-e-Hess collection. This collection is an exploration through which we try to answer a question: “Unrelated to the surrounding space, can we create objects that intrinsically radiate a place of their own, and create a “Konj-e-Hess”. Konj-e-Hess was after a new measuring unit for aesthetics in design. Quite similar to how Iran and its culture sit in the middle on the world map, Konj-e-Hess tells a centrist narrative too. Somewhere on a sharp blade, it cuts off “tenacious design assumptions”; preconceived notions of the sort that “Media” inundates our minds with.

CHALLENGE:
The holy grail of this design was to reach a sculptural Persian aesthetic as the sprit for the body of “furniture design”.
