Makes
Sense Chair

,2019




My first attempt at designing furniture! While attending a furniture building summer course in Copenhagen, I designed the Makes Sense chair. Inspired by Alvar Aalto and Scandinavian design, I designed a chair that challenges the architecture of a wooden chair. While most wooden chairs the connection between the legs and the seat is hidden under the seat, in the Makes Sense chair it is visible from everywhere. The end grain of the legs is celebrated and becomes an important part of the design. While the joinery wouldn't hold its pressure for a long time without glue, I am exploring the possibility of using metal hardware for the assembly and de-assembly of the chair.
