I inspirated from nature.There are hedgehogs,roses and more barbed stuffs and everybody afraid of them, even they don't want to touch .I beleive that people should learn to deal with their fears and they should learn to live with them.Therefore i designed ' Fear Chair'.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
My design is a little chair out of glass .There are some copper nails inside of the glass block.Normally,nobody wants to sit on a chair which has some nails in the middle .But in this chair you can face with your fears and you can sit on nails comfortably even if you can see them all clearly.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Fear chair can be use in companies . For example,during a job interview it can be very useful to understand the attidutes of candidates. Employers can understand ,and test the reactions of candidates.If they are
prejudiced ,fearful , anxious or careful.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
project started on october till december and it havent been in any exhibition yet.It is located in a glass studio in Turkey.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
First i made a plaster model of sitting place than i made another plaster mold of it.After i used patte de ver technique to full fill my mold with
Crystal glass,copper nails. There are four stainless steels to make the chair stand.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width of the chair is 25 cm.
Length of the chair is 35 cm and the chair is totally 60cm higher than floor.
Nobody use nails in that position and function .However, it is very easy way to test people 's reactions with this chair.Therefore i wanted to create such a chair with such a sharp and unusual material.
Actually the hardest part was about the harmony of glass and metal nails.The question was about if the copper nails can be use in the glass .First i made a pretest of my work,after i use them in the glass.Copper is the only metal can be use in glass without any crack.
