In:possible Chair by Kun Ming Thian

Home > Winners > #38066


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
In:possible

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Very often, the understanding of how things work dictates the form of an object. In:possible is informed by the polarized idea of seeing things that will never work under the usual govern of physics and practicality.The objective of the project is to materialize the impossible.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design approach is similar to the art of Trompe-l'œil by creating an illusion of a 'stable slant' by the employment of a highly visible glass base. By doing so, the design becomes unique, breaking the preconceived notion of stability and redefined the topology of a chair.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The chair, despite its exaggerated distortion, is designed to be ergonomic and at a comfortable elevation. It can be placed and used as a normal chair, but reflects a unique personality.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2014 and finished in December 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design process started from the initial idea to visualizations through sketches and scaled models. Each model was done with high density foam to accurately determine its stability, as some geometries distributes the weight very well.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 475mm x Depth 29mm x Height 1200mm

TAGS:
Chair, Space, Object, Physics, Stability

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Very often, the understanding of how things work dictates the form of an object. In:possible is informed by the polarized idea of seeing things that will never work under the usual govern of physics and practicality.The objective of the project is to materialize the impossible and heighten the awareness of objects.

CHALLENGE:
The testing of thickness, strength and proportion for the various designs were tedious. I also had to take into considerations methods of joining and finishing to have a framework that is seamless and conforming to the quality of the supporting glass.
