Morphogenesis Chair is an exploration on how design contributes to the material production of space. Using the concept of ‘PLAY’ students designed a set of six-chairs using slats of birch plywood cut on CNC. Each slat is finished with two colors - red and blue on either side to read as one field of color in one direction. The chairs are designed as a kit of parts which can be configured in multiple ways playing with perception to create a fun colorful playscape for all to be in.
Students (design team): Christine Vu, Steven Yang, Dyesha Holmes, Nhan Luu, Asbiel Samaiego, Eduardo Parra, Michelle Nguyen, Diego Vazquez, Nelly Mehrjerdian, Dayzha King, Andrew Smith, Morgan Fredrick.
