Rocking Chair Redesign
I am always in search of new experiences and knowledge, not just in the field of design but also in life. The Rocking Chair Redesign – 2006 is an example of my constant revival of ideas and inspiration throughout my work. By using two shapes: an oval and rectangle, I was able to create a simple, yet functional design. This is a hand-made rocker that is constructed with Italian birch and bending ply. Two ovals were carefully measured and crafted as the main structural support. A ridge system has been selected as the main construction method and structure for the rocker. A few sheets of Italian bending ply were veneered as the exterior finish. Finally, a piece of three quarter inch birch is inserted and penetrates the chair as the back support.
