Good Day Chaise Lounge Chair by Cameron Smith

Home > Winners > #133969


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Good Day

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chaise Lounge Chair

INSPIRATION:
The Good Day was inspired by two artists recording a song in the music studio. The two complimented each other’s artistic styles with a play between powerful and smooth. Watching them create, I sketched a low-lying lounge chair with a thin floating seat suspended under a crossbar attached to heavier structural legs. The seat would appear light and floating, yet grounded by the thicker leg structure.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The aluminum seat is suspended from an aluminum crossbar and leg structure. The leather pads are formed to produce a clean look without stitching or seams.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The lounge chair is static, but the leather pads are removable for cleaning and maintenance. The removable pads also provide the ability to change the look of the lounge chair with alternate leather colors or materials. The pads are held in place by magnets embedded in the aluminum frame and pads.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The lounge chair was first sketched February 2020 in a recording studio in Seattle, Washington USA. The prototype was completed in Seattle in September 2021.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The aluminum seat and legs are sand cast aluminum. The seat and legs are painted or polished depending on the look. The seat pads have a vacuum formed backer laminated with foam. The leather is formed over a mold to achieve a clean look. Magnets are embedded in the casting and seat pad to keep the pads secure to the frame and allow for easy removal for cleaning.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
635 mm wide x 1600 mm deep x 830 mm tall

TAGS:
modern chaise lounge chair

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An ergonomic model was created that allows for adjustment of length and angle of the seat, leg, back and lumbar. Adjusting the angles and length of the components allowed for the geometry to be tested by various users for maximum comfort. The chaise lounge is an experiential chair where the focus is on the comfort for relaxation. The seat and back angles were selected to give the user a sense of suspension and solitude while relaxing in the chair.

CHALLENGE:
The structure of the aluminum frame suspended under a leg structure proved an interesting engineering challenge. Creating the seat frame from cast aluminum was not only heavy, but also not structurally sound. An internal steel frame weldment was designed to be cast in place with the aluminum casting. In order to achieve pads without stitching or seams, forms were created to wet form leather into the seat shape. The leather was then adhered to the leather pads for a clean stitch free look to match the simplicity of the aluminum frame.
