Transforming Chair

SITE: Planters outside of Wurster Hall, Berkeley

TEAM MEMBERS: Chris Membrano, Alison Tamayo, Edgar Toledo, Yao Nancy Ji

INSTRUCTORS: Gary Black + Marisha Farnsworth

COURSE: ARCH 160. Introduction to Construction / Spring 2011 University of California, Berkeley

The design was conceived as a leaning chair allowing people to comfortably align their body with the chair to the most optimum angles for human comfort. However the chair is able to transform to be used on other sites. The rotating arms of the chair can be adjusted to different angles transforming into a number of different configurations including a chair, low table and long bench. All the connections were designed by ourselves and each wooden component fabricated by hand in the workshop.
