It is said that furniture creates the set for the on-going play we live out. I believe as a furniture maker it is important to be constantly experimenting with different forms and materials to adjust to the “play” as the plot changes.
"Tee Chair" Detail 1
With Tee Chair, I set out to go about upholstery in a way that used recycled materials, as well as related more closely to the potential users of the chair. Tee shirts seemed like a sensible material to use with this chair being that they are often discarded, easily available, and have a character of their own. Using the graphics of the shirt became important as a way to show the tee shirts’ past stories beyond just their color. Tee Chair is a functional chair, that provides comfort through the fabric’s softness, and visual interest through their arrangement.
