A furniture experiment that showcases the imagination of children.
‘Children’s Chairs’ was a personal project that brought the imagination of kids to life, by turning their whimsical chair drawings into real life furniture.
Whilst at university a friend and I conducted an experiment in which a class of 7-8 year olds were given a piece of paper with the words, ‘please draw a chair’. After a couple of hours and a lot of broken crayons, the children had designed their dream chair. With an overwhelming selection of amazing designs, we set ourselves the challenge of building two of our favorites. We eventually gave the chairs back to the kids as a memento of their brilliance.
