Chair Marilyn

A challenge to confuse the sculptural and utilitarian nature of the chair.

This dinning chair creates an unusual and original shape by developing two symmetrical halves, connected in two places with a medium other than timber. The chair’s contemporary look comes from using aluminum material and orange upholstery.

In my work I believe that all the joinery should be exposed and should be a feature of the piece, I used finger joints in the front of the legs and dowel joints in the seat base construction. The backrest of the chair uses a wedge joint. Marilyn took 250 hours to design and construct during which made seven full size variations, nine jigs and hid 30 high tensile screws within a custom manufactured aluminium tube.
