DIAMOND, WOOD AND WOOL
The Adamantem Chair concept is and inhouse creation inspired by the premise of all shapes being swept out from a base shape, and how these sweeps both seperates and comes together harmoniously to generate a unique look.
Althought some very quick and dirty sketches was done in the very start of the project, It wasn’t until we started experimenting in NX CAD that we discovered something worthwile. We’ve already put away circular as a potential base shape, so we tried exploring diffferent different rectangular shapes and ratios. It wasn’t until we tried a standing diamond with a 6:5 (Height:Width) ratio that we knew we were onto something. Even though we felt closer, it still wasn’t exactly where we wanted it to be, until we added a chamfer on all the diamond edges, and that’s when it clicked.
