Home > Winners > #62056


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Amelia

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Armchair

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the audacious personality of Amelia Earhart and the flowing lines of her famous airplanes, this chair tries to inspire audacity and free thought by moving away from classic standards and creating a timeless style.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Incredibly comfortable and ergonomic this armchair has a fluidity of lines, which emulates the shape of airplanes from the mid-twentieth century in a compilation of materials that inspire warmth and modernity.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The dynamically shaped silhouette that the view traverses tries to give the idea of speed and lightness at the same time, trying to create a modern piece with a retro touch being a piece that will surely attract all eyes.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in April 2017 and finished in September 2017, in Merida Yucatan, in the laboratory of prototypes of G. Rios.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design of the coupling system and the casting of the aluminum structures allow to create in this piece a mixture of materials that gives a visual balance and great resistance. The ergonomically shaped seat is made of high-density molded foam and finely upholstered leather.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Solid Tzalam Wood, Cast Aluminum, Premium Leather and High Density Foam.

TAGS:
Chair, Leather, Aviation, Amelia Earhart, Atom punk, G. Rios.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The ergonomics of the armchair and the forms of the planes of the decades of the 20's and 30's were studied in depth.

CHALLENGE:
An extensive study of small-scale casting and the way it was assembled with other parts of the chair was necessary.
