In my Design Methods and Materials’ class, I had to do a street furniture, so I was wondering to design a chair. First I had some ideas:
The blue with brown one is a honeycomb chairs which can be moved separately; the one under it is a pillar with four chairs around four sides, and each chair can be extended to three chairs, so it can fit more people, and the umbrella above the pillar is to keep the rain off; the one on the right hand side is also a chair which has a bird nest as a huge light and decoration. The pillar is octagonal, so except the four original chairs, the other four can be pulled out from the pillar to extend the chair.
This is a bench with two human figures; the main idea is to make this street furniture more lively and interesting. The same concept as the previous one, the umbrella is to keep the rain off, but inside the umbrella, there is a light to provide brightness at night.
Then I fond some inspirations:
Here is my model, it’s 1:15.
This honeycomb chair can be divided into individual chairs and group chairs; both of them can be opened, so people can put their stuff in them, and the individual chairs can also be pulled up as tables. The reason to chose honeycomb shape is because it’s organic and natural, and I would like it be placed in parks, so there is a demonstration underneath.
