WOODWORK | FURNITURE DESIGN | RHINO-3D MODELLING
hand-crafted wooden stool inspired by Enzo Mari's 'Autoprogettazione'
Undertaken during my exchange program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT, cambridge) Department of Architecture and Planning, the Perspective Stool is inspired by Enzo Mari's 'Autoprogettazione' and attempts to follow the rules of form repetition for the creation of interesting design.
The design process led me towards insights on minimalism for function and taught the essential skill of construction with wood. Its design repeats hollowed out rectangles constructed by butt-joining planks of 1/2 soft wood followed by arranging said rectangles in a centripetal pattern, which too, occurs owing to
a set of repetitive rules.
The design also has special characteristic- each viewing angle shows a different look in terms of form, colour and dimension- creating an illusion of a perspective.
