I was looking for ideas for a chair I am designing and I ran across this chair. The Lily chair, created for the Danish Fair in 1970 and is a beautiful example of taking an idea you have already produced and expanding on it. What I love about it is the negative space left between the arms and the base. The idea of adding on the arms but not physically connecting the materials but using a carrier to transition the gap is something I will pull into my current project.
- "I had three chairs in my house: one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society." Henry David Thoreau, in WALDEN
Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
