Fauteuil I, Fauteuil II

scroll down to read ↓

The main purpose of Philipp Aduatz' Fauteuil I is to function as a prototype for a smaller complement to the Dormeuse. It has an armchair-like appearance, perfect for resting and comfortable reclining.The pieces are made from polystyrene foam and coated with glue and a special polyurethane lacquer to make the objects durable and usable, the edition consists of five pieces where each piece is -due to the handwork- unique.

After digitizing, the 3D scan data is used as basis for modeling the Fauteuil II, a complement to Aduatz´ diploma project in 2007, the Dormeuse. The object combines a sculptural and opulent shape with a load bearing system of cell-like appearance in a usable object that is inspired by the classical armchair.
