DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Propella

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Easy Chair

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this design comes from the aerodynamic shape of an engine propeller. Its sculptural quality allow a seamless transition into the shape and structure of the chair. Propella bears an organic profile with high backrest providing a comfortable seating position. The chair's light topology with 3 sculptural legs holding up its organic body is designed to enhance such inspirational aerodynamic shape and flow.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Propella is an easy lounge chair with fabric upholstery back and dove feather seating cushion. Propella's high back profile provides a comfortable yet private position for your relax moment while reading a book or working on your laptop. This project is designed to promote craftsmanship in Vietnam by working closely with local artisans. The simple yet sculptural solid oak frame is made to show their high quality joinery and great attention to details.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design research starts with my study of the sculptural shapes and forms of propellers which powers up air plane engines. The result of this process provides me with numerous shapes and sizes. This leads to a more refined selection to be adapted into making this organic topology while proving enough seating comfort and privacy with its high-back profile.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging parts of this process designing this chair is to create organic forms that can be translated into a viable product. A major part of the design process was to understand all machineries and the local craftsmen's constrains and guide them with my limited understanding of production. The result was a balance between design aesthetic and hand-on practice learnt from the experienced people of the crafts.
