Xylo Chair by Morgan McBratney

Home > Winners > #22795


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Xylo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Simple flow of line and ergonomics of the human body as well as the need to create a chair that is easily mass produced.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Aside from the obvious grace and flow the Xylo Chair provides, the ease of production from a single sheet of plywood via CNC machining and cost of manufacture are key factors. Extensive research into structure and ergonomics were also extremely influential. The use of the plywood on the end grain gives substantial strength while still maintaining flexibility and the subtle curves hug the body with unusual accuracy to make this chair as comfortable as it is beautiful.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The initial concept was conceived in August, 2009 and the final product was produced in October, 2009. Xylo was first shown at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Shown at the Living Arts gallery for the Oklahoma Visual Arts coalition's bi-annual "Momentum" show of media from all disciplines receiving 2nd place and a Curator Honorable Mention. It was then shown a third time in a showing of furniture at gallery "Untitled" in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma until March 31st of 2010.
