Maple & Elm, 2019

Carpentry project

Academic. Four months. Built.
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
ARCH 572: Carl Lewis, Lowell Miller.

Piece of furniture designed for the House in Aiguafreda. The housing project also added that they had to design a piece of furniture for it.

The piece of furniture chosen is a wooden armchair, which, being a house on the coast, will be able to relax in it. Its design also ensures that the furniture adapts perfectly to the house and its needs, where any user can sit comfortably and relax.

The main challenge of this project lies in two guidelines imposed from the beginning of the design. The first is that all the furniture has to be built using Japanese joints in the wood. The second, in my case, was that the furniture could be transported from the United States to Barcelona in the suitcase itself.
