As I researched for sofas shaped in a cylindrical form, I came across The Bell Lab sofa made by Moroso. This model was originally designed for a project by the historic research facility in central in New Jersey (a project by Eero Saarinen).  I got a brief idea of the size and shape for my initial sketch.

<Movement> Moving Buildings

Dynamic Tower by David Fischer

Each floor is designed to rotate independently, resulting in a changing shape of the tower. Each floor is designed to rotate a maximum of 6 metres per minute, or one full rotation in 180 minutes.

<Movement> Kruikantoor

'Kruikantoor-Mobile Office' by Tim Vinke

 IMG_4430.jpg.1

Kruikantoor-this name is a combination of the words, wheelbarrow and office. The material for this model is EPS foam. I really liked how all interior elements could be combined, allowing the whole object to be moved easily.

'Leaf' by Luum

This piece anodised aluminum discs can be tilted and arranged so illumination mimics light shining through a canopy of leaves. I think it would look beautiful under light, creating beautiful shadows.

<Movement> A Windmill

Rotation and Spin of a Windmill

windmill-1546912_1280-1.jpg

_windmill1.jpg

The clock hands of the musee d'Orsay and the Big Ben reminded me of the windmill and a wind power generator. Windmills rotate by wind, which gave me an idea to design a building that rotates by wind. I designed a building in which each floor separately rotates by wind.

<Movement> Big Ben

Rotation of the Big Ben

IMG_1265.jpg.1

After seeing the clock on musee d'Orsay, I decided to research more of the clock towers. Obviously, I couldn't miss the Big Ben. The huge clock on the building just keep inspires me to design a rotating building.

<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.

'Pendulums' by Fabrica

The Pendulum creates an entropic melody of tones based on the collisions of the Alcantara covered spheres suspended from the overhanging structure. I really like this piece because I think users of any age could play with it.

<Movement> A clock on Musee d'Orsay

A clock on the building of Musee d'Orsay

musee-d-orsay.jpg.1

I found this clock on the building of musee d'Orsay, when I visited there few days ago. I was inspired by the rotation of the huge clock hands. I thought of an idea of a circular rotating windows on a building, that winds up on each other like a clock. From that idea, I even thought of designing just a moving building.

<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.

<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.

My initial inspiration was from the clock on the building of Musee d'Orsay. I related that idea of the rotation of a clock to wheels. I was specifically interested in the wheels of a tank, in which seem like a series of circles overlapped on each other. From the shape of the belt that connects the wheels on a tank, I thought I could create a chair in a similar form.

<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> 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.
