seat of clouds

industrial design

Seat of Clouds is a children's chair that encourages play and exploration
Yilan Chair Design Competition Submission 2017​​​​​​​
Concept
The brief called for a piece of children's furniture inspired by the nature and culture of Yilan, Taiwan. In my research I was fascinated by "Sea of Clouds", a phenomenon characteristic to Yilan where the cloud cover is lower than the mountain tops, creating an otherworldly landscape.
First Model
Abstracted mountains surround a cloud shaped bench to evoke the "Sea of Clouds" phenomenon
Final Model
A single mountain with a cloud seat attached to it is a simplified final version of the Seat of Clouds
