Chair Design

This was the final project of our Drawing Systems class, in which we had to create our own chair. I wanted mine to be very organic, very tree-like (I got some inspiration from Lord of the Rings - Treebeard). The chair is called "Trans Plant," as it resembles a plant-like appearance, and you can take it apart as well. The tall "tree trunk" is the support for the chair, while the "leaf pod" is where you sit.

We had to draw 3 orthographic drawings (front, side and top views) with measurements, and then a "beauty drawing" (the 3/4 view shown at the top of the drawing).

I'm very happy with the outcome and I wish this could be made into a real chair someday!
