What have you NOT chosen, and why? Sketch your project applying 3 wildly different aesthetics from the timeline. Plus an update, if needed
To pick an aesthetic for my final project I was fairly constrained in the direction to take the project due to the materials I have chosen. I want to build the chair from old skis, which tend to be extremely colorful and bright so that eliminates my favorite aesthetic of minimalism. My attempts to apply the minimalist aesthetic to my design in an organic design style chair can be seen below. If I could make the rounded structure of the chair look like a ski, I could still keep the design intent that I have been planning on.
The next aesthetic I attempted was art deco. This idea came about when I thought of the different ways I could piece together pieces of skis. Using the different skis to fill in different colors and textures would give my chair a much different feel. A sketch of my art deco chair can be seen below.
After trying on a couple of different aesthetics, I have come back to the roots of the project. The ski town aesthetic is the aesthetic for this chair. With bright inviting colors from the obviously up-cycled skis in their unaltered form, and some rusted metal to hold it all together will give the chair the feel I am looking for. The chair will look something like what is sketched below in the final product.
Ski Town Aesthetics
Choosing the aesthetic of a project is much more difficult than expected. The original form of an idea is rarely the final outcome, so trying on different aesthetics through sketches has confirmed some of my decisions and given more direction to the chair project.
