The design of the chair involves many elements such as function, shape, material, structure, technology, and art. Chairs are not only used for people to rest, in addition to providing seats, they can also hang clothes and bags. Chairs are indispensable furniture for human sitting activities. Depending on their practical nature, chairs include a variety of forms, and due to differences in materials and structures, they can form many different forms.
The following is the chair design process
(1) Conceptualization stage
The conceptual stage is the concept and purpose of the overall design, and is a prerequisite to ensure the smooth progress of the specific design in the future. The process of setting the conceptualization of the chair design involves issues related to the functionality, structure, material, and shape of the chair.
(2) Concretization stage
It is to solve the structure, function and aesthetic problems of furniture and create its basic shape according to the design plan set in the conceptualization stage. At this stage, a lot of sketches, drawings, models are made, materials are selected, and the structure of the chair and other details are discussed.
(3) Designing the chair stage
The key to chair design is to focus on the design that conforms to the overall appearance and core architecture (Core). The appearance of the product, the shape of the chair and the stable structure should not only reflect the designer’s exquisite design, but also achieve people’s comfort requirements. This is the focus of designing furniture. In order to achieve this goal, we made the following skeleton (Skeleton) model based on the appearance of the product proposed in the actualization stage.
From this skeleton model, we can not only see the appearance that embodies the product concept, but also obtain information about the location and connection of various accessories of the product, such as core structure (Core), tilt (Tilt), base (Base), and armrests. (ArmRest) and so on. This can be expressed by the designer from three angles, namely surface (Surface), curve (Curve), and datum plane (DatumPlane) while designing the product and making sketches.
(5) Design and inspection stage
The product design completed through the above steps is not perfect. Especially the chair has a close relationship with the human body structure. It can be said that people’s judgment on the rationality and applicability of product design is very important. Therefore, the design should be checked. For the design of the chair, it is very important that the thigh of the chair-the base part can stably support the body weight. Of course, it is also necessary to check the Back, that is, the back of the chair that supports the human back, and the ArmRest, that is, the armrest.
Through the above series of instructions, we can understand the entire process of the designer’s personal design of product parts. Of course, compared with specialized component designers, their designs may still have shortcomings, but this expands the designer’s work area. The important thing is that the designer who creates the product can develop through participating in the entire development process of the product. A more friendly and ergonomic product.
