Side Chair (Richard Riemerschmid)

E. Goode * Faith Rames * Kara Kooy

It’s fitting to start off the Side chair examples with a painted version.  Riemerschmid began and ended his career as a painter.  The simple lines in the side chair are reminiscent of a brush stroke.  The seat detail these examples show is some of what we are looking for.  The students doing these cards are dealing with 50 of our recent past’s famous chairs.  Each designer we draw a card for went through countless renditions of these drawings.  This deck of cards will serve you in your career.  Make sure every gesture you put on paper reflects the intention of the original designer.
