Chairs, do you ever think twice about sitting on one? About what it looks like, how it functions and if its comfortable or not, and to be honest, most of us wouldn’t give a scooby because we have bigger fish to fry in this world of ours.
However there comes a time and place for such an interest. For some odd reason I have a big desire to design my own chair, not quite sure why; I just know I wanted to design my very own chair. So when we had a chance to write our own brief, I leaped at the chance of designing one. I wanted to pay particular attention to multifunctional chairs, the type you would find in a contemporary environment.
“The furniture company Vitra is looking looking to introduce a range of multifunctional chairs that can easily be implemented into domestic or commercial environments. The chair must be mass produced in high volumes and must also be stackable. The chair must have a distinctive contemporary appearance which promotes a shape that ensures freedom of movement.”
The images above and below show a few snapshots of the design process and the final outcome, which I have taken from the project. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
Hey you hungry bunch! Where have I been you ask…well cut a long story short, my MacBookPro hard drive decided to pack up two weeks ago, all fixed now thank goodness. Since then I have been itching to do a quick post about the iPad2. If you have not already heard about it then your head must be stuck in the clouds because Apple have thrown the second generation out there and what a gorgeous little number this one is.
Okay, so this post is not exactly up to date, bear in mind the iPad2 was unveiled on 2nd March. However I made sure I was watching the live blogfeed from the keynote on the night. Unlike me, you don’t have to adore Apple to realise the coolness of such a device. With the addition of a front and rear facing camera it really broadens the spectrum regarding the type of tasks the iPad can now do, which in turn I think has given Apple the advantage of widening the customer demographic. I think the introduction of Facetime on the iPad was a obvious move forward in the right direction along with a newly designed case which I think is one of the most smartest around. I think the idea of accessories being designed alongside the actual product is something that should be embraced a lot more in the future.
Anyway, I have whacked a YouTube clip below showing the features of the official Apple case, which for some reason reminds me of a Pixar short. Enjoy. And comment.
