The object of this assignment was to choose 2-5 functional objects and select elements from each of them to combine into one nonfunctional object.
These were the objects I chose.
Smooth, continuous forms
parallel lines (order, consistency)
variation of thickness (lines plus masses)
activation of negative space through overlapping, overturning elements
warm, natural finish
in inventing my piece, I specifically tried to use the base of the coatrack, the bulky vs. linear quality of the barstool, and the curvaceous quality and wooden appearance of the chair.
