25 Golden Ratio, then Chairs

Today we went over shade and shadows during sketching practice. We finished discussion of Geometric Aesthetics looking at the Golden Ratio, including a video about John Edmark.

Then we started looking at chairs as a case study. Chairs have evolved along with other furnishings, and their history is well documented (Chippendale anyone?). We saw some of the chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames, including the iconic Eames Lounge Chair 670/671, and the Eames Tandem Sling, that you’ve probably sat on in airports.
