DESIGN NAME:
Angel

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seating

INSPIRATION:
This chair was inspired by Angels specially their wings and their roles; Angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between god or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Angel chair has a unique look with its elegant curves. When you sit on the chair, it gives you wings and makes you feel like an angel. you can feel that it embraces you. It assures you that angel can protect you in this heartless world. Design follows a minimalistic approach and aims for a light, simple chair.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This design is the outcome of a personal research exploring the possibilities of an object being produced either with standard manufacturing methods or introducing new technologies. For manufacturing, we just need steel tubes (or aluminum, plastic and so on). The steel tubes are bent and welded together to form a strong frame.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is at its conceptual stage. Small prototypes have been produced.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Although initially it was intended for stainless steel production, this piece can also be produced in different materials and processes, such as plastic, carbonfiber, aluminum , etc.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Overall Dimension: Width 800 mm x Depth 450 mm x Height 850 mm

TAGS:
chair, angel, luxury furniture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I wanted to create a product "that go beyond" merely practical and aesthetic goals. The research process was focused on the symbols in our life. life as it is lived in reality, involving unwelcome as well as welcome experiences, as distinct from a fictional world. My goal is to combine the real life and fictional world.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge has been the technical and formal assembly development. The positioning and shaping of 5 pipes , first. And secondly, the base interlocking into the seat.
