  FURNITURE DESIGN
  SENIOR YEAR
   
  ASSIGNMENT
  CREATE AN ORIGINAL AND PROVACATIVE FURNITURE CONCEPT  
   
  PROJECT SCOPE  
  CREATE A DYNAMOC FURNITURE PIECE THAT FORCES AN INTERSECTION BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS  
     
  PROJECT FLAVOR  
  DO PEOPLE LOVE OR HATE EACH OTHER  

CONCEPT GENESIS
Here I explored massive forms that would require the user to define the furniture to their own surroundings. Playing off the idea of a lounging lion, the human lounges on this large massive "jungle gym" in their own private watering hole
FURTHER IDEATION
These were concepts dealing with the same idea, but attempting to solve it in a much simpler and smaller manner
CONCEPT REFINEMENT
During the conceptual process I hit a wall with my sketching. I decided to change mediums to alter my perception of the problem. Working big allowed me to find more expressive forms and gain a new perspective on the problem.

INTERSECTION DEVELOPMENT
Here I took forms from the previous exercise and moved them more fluidly into my concept
DESIGN SOLUTION
The solution is designed to be used in a typical cafe' setting, and incorporated with a sister piece.
