Inspired by my love of guitar, music and unique furniture, I chose to develop a piece of furniture that could make playing and learning the guitar a more enjoyable process. One of the main problems living in an apartment in college was the lack of adequate space for doing things like playing guitar, even more so spreading out song books or tabs and trying to learn a song.

A good amount of time was spent studying how people played their instrument, paying special attention to where they sit, how they sit, how often they move, and what kind of mannerisms they exhibit. I discovered that sitting closer to the ground provided the most comfort as it allowed for constant repositioning of the feet, legs, and overall posture which is extremely important when sitting and doing any task for a prolonged amount of time.

The design of Muse was steered by function with a concentration on comfort and look. One of Muse’s main functions is the 360 degree rotating music stand. It was designed so it could be hidden when not in use and allow for both right and left hand players to be able to adjust it to their liking. Many other aspects of Muse were inspired from elements of the guitar in order to form an emotional connection with the user including the curve of the legs, the footrest and the seat back.

The first Muse prototype was constructed out of pine and built in with the intention to discover the problems with the current design and streamline the production process. The prototype did not have many problems, but the seating angle was adjusted and the seat back shape was redesigned to allow more support and comfort. These changes were translated in to 3D CAD and then brought to production.

Ideally, I wanted the chair to be produced as cheap and fast as possible which was achieved as the legs were designed to be cut using the router table and the seat could be produced with bendable birch sandwiched in between maple veneer. The complete material list used to produce the final Muse prototype was walnut for the outside of the legs and the stem, white maple for the middle of the legs and maple veneer the seat back.
