Reference_Eames Lounge Chair Wood

Each of the undulating parts of the chair was understood as generated from a set of boundary and surface curves with minimum control points, which exerts an invisible weight and effective control over the double curved surfaces. This set of economical curves extends from dimensioning the one to one furniture to modeling the quarter scale miniature, it was utilized to generate the formwork and experimented with the grain of birch veneer. When the curves of the desired geometry was confronted with the curves from the of material nature, the target geometry was challenged and the veneer tended to crack or leave flaws. Mechanical and air pressure were constantly tested on the formwork and options of scores or grains on veneer, until a satisfactory level of manipulation on the outcome could be achieved.
