The project brief was to develop a stool that incorporated at least one curve cut off a jig and one bent lamination. Inspired by the works of Dusko Lapcevic and Eric Pfieffer, I sketched a collection of stools based on an abstracted rib shape. The ribs formed either the seat or the legs of the stool and they were joined using different joints, lashings and weaving. I made two of the designs into pieces. In the future, I would like to expand the Rib Stool range using my other sketches as it is an adaptable shape.
The seat of the Eve was cut from the pictured jig. The rib shapes were formed in the pictured mould. I soaked strips of wood in boiling water and dried it in the mould as the curve was too tight to do bent lamination immediately. I lapped the ribs into the wood panel with a dowel joint.
