Netheravon Chair Chair by Philippe Beauparlant

Home > Winners > #54091


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Netheravon Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
The sculptured upholstery is inviting for the user and almost presents an internalized experience when considered against the very rectilinear exterior form. In a manner the chair appears as though sliced out of a moment in movement. When combined, the curved forms flow from one chair to another.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Netheravon chair is an exploration in creating compact soft seating with shapes that could inspire re-configurations. Multiple examples of the chair can be manipulated in combinations or independently to create diverse interpretations. The compact dimensions are well suited for applications in small spaces. The scale and seating ergonomics focuses on the essence of lounge furniture with a relaxed and comfortable user position.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
For the Netheravon chair, the objective was to distill the seating position to its fundamental form and enhance the visual appearance of the seating and back angles. This lead to the canyon like space between back rest and seat that never gets touched by the user yet the lack of contact with the body in this area doesn’t take away from the comfort of the experience. The curved forms are further defined in contrast with rigid and rectilinear exterior shapes of the chair.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This seating project was developed in Toronto over the span of a number of years as a personal study in form. This latest iteration presented here sees an amalgamation of monochromatic tones layered over different materials and finishes.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Molded polyurethane foam, fabric, oiled solid white oak base, painted steel back bracket.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
24” Wide, 24”Deep, 15” seating height, 26 ¾” Overall height

TAGS:
chair, lounge seating, soft seating, lounge, lobby chair, compact chair, small chair, seating, waiting area

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design of the chair had to translate an honesty about the manufacturing and assembly. The upholstery is a sewn cover pulled over a molded polyurethane foam seat and back and mounted on a veneer core plywood base. The wood platform base and back rest can be dismantled with easily accessible fasteners. The visibility of the back support bracket becomes part of the design language.

CHALLENGE:
The design strives to answer two creative challenges, one of creating a compact seating chair without giving the initial appearance of something diminutive. The second challenge was in creating an extremely comfortable seating position with the right amount of give in the back rest in a compact form. The design achieves this by distilling the seating position to the essence of the requirements.
