This chair took third place in the 2014 Chair Design Competition that Obrary had with San Diego State University.
My inspiration for this project was my two kids, Brooklyn 5 1/2 and Bam 4 years old. I love to make functional art and this project was just that. I wanted to make a fun chair, so why not a rocker. I wanted it low to the ground and fun looking. I drew up a lot of sketches made a few models then ultimatley drew it up on Rhino. I exported the file to the CNC Routing Machine and brought the rocker to life. While the chair can hold an adult it's perfect for children. Kid tested and approved.
- Lay one side of the chair flat on the floor.
- Place the slats in the side on the floor.
- Place the remaining side on top of the slats. Line up the slats with the holes in the side.
- Use a rubber mallet to ensure a tight fit.
- Use glue or nails for a more secure bond.
