My Plastic Chair comfortably wraps around the human body while providing a durable and low-impact seating. Featured on Interior Designio.

Full scale dining and easy chair mockups helped testing proportions for comfort.
Early "toilet seat" chair mockups informed me of the seat shape's structural integrity.
Seat and chair back shape were refined. Full scale seating were tested with thinner plastic (ABS). The frown was turned upside down into a less recognizable form. The seat was separated from the back for comfort (major areas of the human back do not touch the hardwares) and lower production cost.
