A chair conceived through both reductional and additive processes. The goal was to reinterpret the common mono-block lawn chair. The 'Forest' Lawn Chair presents to us a situational object that unlike a classic lawn chair, its purpose is to stay grounded in one spot.
Created out of a coloured plaster mold the trapezoid base will degrade over time due to extreme weather changes that will occur during Chicago's Fall and Winter months. The chair will be revisited in order to observe the degradation process that will happen through Spring's advent.
Will the weather create a better chair to sit in, will it allow the chair to be used different ways? The temporality of the base and the fact that it is the base itself that keeps the chair grounded makes for an interesting juxtaposition.
