Trace Dining Chair by Mark Daniel

Home > Winners > #53269


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Trace

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Dining Chair

INSPIRATION:
The Trace chair started as a contour sketch, an exercise where the outline of an object is drawn in a continuous line without lifting the pencil. This single line was then translated into a steel wire frame. becoming the design feature, expressed in the 180 degree bend at the feet, the bowing of the crossbar under the seat, and the arch at the back that acts as an integral handle. A leather sling seat and back was chosen to complement the minimal profile of the chair.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Trace is a stackable dining chair designed for use in home and contract environments. It is constructed of a solid, steel wire frame that supports a stitched, reinforced leather seat and back sling. The slings flex to provide a comfortable, supportive seat that adjusts to the user. The chair features an integral handle at the back for easy mobility, and stacks efficiently with the addition of custom moulded foam pads under the seat to prevent rubbing wear.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This chair is stackable and can be easily moved with the integral handle at the top of the back.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The development of this chair's design started in January 2016 and went into production October of 2016.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The cold rolled steel wire frame is bent into shape using tooling developed for the specific radii required of the design. The frame is available in a variety of epoxy powdercoat finishes. The top grain leather sling seat and back are reinforced by a secondary layer of fabric chosen to reduce the stretching and lengthen the life of the leather.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
54.5cm wide x 83.5cm tall x 55cm deep. Meets testing protocol ANSI/BIFMA X5.1-2011 for contract seating.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research that went into this design was born of experience in the seating market and understanding and capitalizing on the capabilities of the manufacturer. Knowing the market and the customer determined stylistically where the design needed to excel - bridging the gap between the home space, work space and hospitality environments at an accessible price point. The capabilities of the manufacturer and their talent at working with formed wire also informed the design's development.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge of this project was sourcing a top grain leather that was thick enough to withstand use, but still felt soft to the touch. Key to this was the addition of a reinforcing fabric substrate to extend the life of the leather by stabilizing the amount of stretch.
