California Lounge:
A Material Exploration for a new lounge chair

Roles: Furniture Design | Product Design 

The California Lounge chair disregards any superfluous or decorative details for a purist formal language which insists on the materials and the form being directly related to its  functional uses. Each element of the design looks at how to achieve the most out of the least.

The functional attributes of the chair: ergonomics, durability and  aesthetics play a vital role in morphogenesis, the creation of form. The angled sides of the seat wrap around the user, stabilizing and enclosing, morphing the chair and user into a single affect. The displaced veneer from where the metal penetrates becomes handles to move the chair as well and grips for the user when seated.
