Ribbon Chair - Details - The idea of using metal and wood concurrently and exploiting their material properties has always interested me. The ribbon chair is a continuous loop of metal that transforms to allow for flexibility at selected moments. At the seat and back, a metal channel ribbon loses its vertical flange and, thus, its rigidity. An exposed mortis and tenon joint between the metal and wood displays this transformation.

Caterpillar Chair - The caterpillar chair, borrows from Carlo Mollino the idea of creating dynamic, organic forms that reflect and complement the human body. A shaped wood form provides a stable base for this lounge chair; attached to it is a simple stock piece of metal, a flat bar, which allows for flexibility at the back support. This chair was my first investigation in the concurrent use of metal and wood and exploitation of their material properties. My Ribbon chair is the next stage of investigation.
