|Honorable mention 2|
Designer: Rendy Himawan
"This was an example of a design taking advantage of the capabilities of T-Splines without the designer succumbing to the temptation of letting TS dictate the design. A good, humorous and completely plausible design."
I had an idea of designing something that quite aesthetic, hence represent some critics in other side. Three years ago I attend a class by Prof. Imam Buchori, he said that design should be able to give a social message to society. In this design I wanted to say that we have something bad in us in some way. So, we deserve to sit in this “devil chair”, regardless what job we have. Politicians, lawyers, designers, architects, we are a devil in some way.
I still want to represent a fun image in this design, bright fancy colors would be an option. Technically, the main body of the chair will be made by injection plastic (I don’t care how big will the mold be, but it must be a single component). The seat rest will be made from high tension fabric (like Batyline), and some metal parts for legs or quad-base legs.
Diavolo Chair comes in two varies: quad based legs and standard legs (look for the glide :) ).
In this model, I don’t use any preliminary sketch. I only used some lines from Rhino, then using tsAppend to build one surface at a time. For some points, the verts need to be set and flattened, but for most of the model (like in the backrest), I did something crazy by pulling and extruding the faces wildly.
And here’s the result :), hope you enjoy it, and don't hesitate to seat yourself on the chair (we both know there’s a devil inside of us :) ).
