Summary

This is a project I made for school. We were asked to bring a piece of furniture into class from the garbage and dissect it, realize the construction method then rebuild it into a piece of sculpture. This was to be the basis for our final design.
I found a chair in my back yard that had been there for several years. I thought it was like a soldier shipped off to war then upon returning is discarded because it is "broken." I gave the chair a crystal clear acrylic leg to signify an injury.
Taking the essence of the wounded chair I then decided to design a chair that was born without one leg. I did the math to ensure it could still stand and began construction.
The dark coloured chair is a Stephan chair from IKEA and was featured in a publication for first generation students and was also featured at the show for the launch of the book.
The Ash chair is 100% my design. It was featured in a year end retrospective show at the school and now proudly sits in my living room as a fully functional piece of furniture and a great conversation piece.
It was my intention to bring further awareness of disabilities.
