FE-30 - Study for a 30in Steel Stool 2018

  • A very short project, spans for about 2 weeks
    Began with some quick sketch models


  • Cold-rolled steel rods (hence the name FE) bent to make desired shape based on a technical drawing
    A touch-and-feel process


  • Bent rods now welded together (Mostly butt joints)
    Making a 30" frame (hence the FE-30)


  • Tabs welded on
    Bottom tray bent with Finger Break
    Sprayed with desired color


  • Conveys an industrial, disciplined feel
    Hard-edges, angularity, the coldness of it


  • But why the Asymmetricality?  Because it breaks rules.
