<Use It> Robin Day & Charles and Ray Eames

During the class, we were given the Polyprop Chair by Robin Day as a main example. I did more research on his works, including the Polyprop chair. I found that all of his designs were very functional and technologically efficient. I specifically researched for the chairs that have two distinct boards. Robin Day's Hilleplan chair, which was created for the Festival of Britain, was modular so that multiple units could be combined in coordinated groups. Chevron chair was also aesthetically beautiful and practical, making it equally suitable for domestic or contract use.

I also did a research on one of my favourite furniture designers, Charles and Ray Eames. Their infamous DSW chair has a very similar design to Robin Day's Polyprop chair. DSW chair is very simple and useful, and it's design suits literally everywhere. Their LCW chair is also my favourite. I've once read a book about Charles and Ray Eames, and found out that the LCW chair was actually designed for elders at sanatorium, who have uncomfortable bodies.

<Wear It> Winde Rienstra

For the project Wear It, I wanted to design a product that can support uncomfortable body parts. I was inspired by fashion accessories made with hard and solid material. For example, I was inspired by Winde Rienstra’s 2012 S/S collection. The design was intricate and unique, but the outline was shaped with solid wood which made it look very strong.

<Wear It> Junya Watanabe

Junya Watanabe's 2017 FW collection

He used felt material and created thick structural pattern. I got an idea of making a chair with a thick felt material, which will make the product easy to fold and carry around.

<Ideas Factory> Impossible Objects

An impossible object (also known as an impossible figure or an undecidable figure) is a type of optical illusion. It consists of a two-dimensional figure which is instantly and subconsciously interpreted by the visual system as representing a projection of a three-dimensional object.

<BUILD IT> Beko Building by Zaha Hadid DDP by Zaha Hadid

A building in Serbia, named the Beko Building, also designed by Zaha Hadid. 

The Beko Building is a swirling complex of apartments, offices and leisure facilities on the abandoned site of an old textile factory. It is shaped with various bendy parts of the design help create "one continuous unit". The curved walls of the buildings fold around a series of new squares and gardens. "The design for Beko is embedded within the surrounding landscape of Belgrade’s cultural axis and incorporates essential public spaces," said Hadid.

<BUILD IT> DDP by Zaha Hadid

For the project Build It, my group built a twisted building with a pattern. I wanted to research more architecture that had similar aspects.

DDP(Dongdaemun Design Plaza) Building in Seoul, South Korea, designed by Zaha Hadid. DDP is shaped in curvy lines, with constant pattern of horizontal lines. Every time I visited DDP, I was mesmerised with the building because the whole building is designed in such a futuristic way and shaped like a UFO.

<Ideas Factory>M.C. Escher .

Maurits Cornelis Escher, or commonly M. C. Escher, was a Dutch artist who made mathematically inspired woodcuts and lithographs. His work features mathematical objects and operations including impossible objects, explorations of infinity, reflection, symmetry, perspective, and hyperbolic geometry. Although Escher believed he had no mathematical ability, he interacted with the mathematicians and conducted his own research into tessellation.
