With the prompt “make a beautiful, ergonomic
chair” the possiblities were almost endless. So
I sought inspiration through feeling, creating a chair based on more found inspiration that I personally loved.
After a slew of sketches, the pack was boiled
down to three and models were made. The final choice was developed into a
“to-scale” structural model and construction
began on the full piece.
The construction process included:
- Vacuum-pressed adhesion
- Milled & Lathed Oak and Aluminum
- Komo Routed Profile
- Base Tinting, Staining & Waterproofing
- Sewn & Upholstered Sunbrella Fabric
- Hand-Tapped Grommets
- Authentic Sailing Knots
The final piece reflected a nautical look & feel that was right at home in the high-end outdoor furniture space. With a wide base, weatherproof sealing and Sunbrella fabric, the Odyssey chair could even live on a yacht. The Odyssey is strong enough for a trip out to sea, and back home again.
