BUBBLE STOOL

[ FALL '15 ]

This bubble stool is part of an investigation using color and pattern in playful and unexpected ways. I also wanted to combine the use of digital fabrication with brush strokes to create something that was truly "digitally handmade". By applying paint to the surface of the acrylic instead of the inner rim the spherical pattern appears fleeting and impermanent rather than solid and tangible.

I wanted to restrict myself to using CMYK since these colors are so indicative of the "digital age" and informative of the way the pattern was generated. Below are some color tests and paintings I created to help generate pattern and form.
