Teresa Luxury Chair by Aldo Petruzzelli

Home > Winners > #75206


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Teresa

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Luxury Chair

INSPIRATION:
I drew inspiration from the Italian Masters of chair design such as Giò Ponti and Franco Albini.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The chair hereby shown is my first design ever produced at full-scale. The warm nature of wood is combined with the black upholstery which creates a sharp contrast. All the pieces were manufactured by diligent artisans who knew how to make this chair a reality. A lot of adjustments were made as I encounter several issues with joints and standard measures. I faced the harsh reality of finding the compromise between what your design is and what the material can do. In brief it helped me to grow.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Teresa has a sort of handle on top that allows it to be dragged around, in spite of the not so light nature of the chair. The arms, on the other hand, have been designed in order to recover the old plasticity of mid-century furniture with a modern touch.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The mere ideation lasted about one month; the production lasted about two months in total. The entire process lasted 3 months, it started in May and finished in July. There was a break in June due to other homework at school.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Materials: Solid Wood (Noce Daniela); Waterproof Black Fabric; Machines: CNC Machinery; Lathe; Above there are the machines as well as the materials used for this design. I tried to come up with solutions as I was in the wood shop overseeing the manufacturing process which, obviously, required elbow grease as well.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
730 x 560 x 770 mm; 15 kg weight.

TAGS:
Chair, Furniture, Wood, Upholstered, Modern

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I developed this chair as I attended my 4th year of High School after having completed a long research through the most iconic chairs from the Industrial Revolution to modern days. After that I was asked to come up with an idea that could sum up what I had learned as well as what shape I wanted to give to my first chair ever. We pretended to have a real client (my professor) and to have actual guidelines, which we had not.

CHALLENGE:
The manufacturing process was quite off-putting. Being my first chair and the first serious object in terms of money invested it's been a hell of a journey looking for the right carpenter for this job. Plus we changed measures several times due to my lack of experience but not only that, I could not make substantial changes to the design because the most difficult part is being loyal to what you had in mind when you deal with materials.
