drawings - Using an Adirondack chair one summer at the beach, it affected my vacation experience in a very positive way. I wanted to recreate that comfortable, relaxed experience with something new that was suitable for indoors. I also wanted to build functionality into the seat to give it purpose while not in use. It is not always suitable to recline in such a way that the Adirondack proposes, so the seat & back angle was slightly modified to give a more upright feel.
A year before I started the project, I had been very interested in the Netherlands, and while reading Brilliant Orange by David Winner, I learned how football (soccer) was influencing the Dutch culture during the 20th century and vice versa. It went farther and even talked about similarities between their city planning, politics, arts, and the Dutch mind set.
