"DAVID TRUBRIDGE COMES TO PARSONS"
I wrote an article for Design Milk about our experience in the David Trubridge Storytelling Workshop. Above is the completed installation created by Laura Yeh, Jessica Kang, and I.
Recently, students from across the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School for Design came together to participate in a storytelling workshop led by the New Zealand designer David Trubridge. The weekend-long event was a mad-dash mash-up of architecture, interior design, product design and lighting design students working together to convey a story through designed objects…
Students and city dwellers make a series of compromises because of the limited space they have in their apartments. Due to how large lounge chairs usually are, there is a lack of dedicated reading space that properly supports the body. This results in extended reading hunched over a work desk or in various uncomfortable positions on the bed. The goal of the Plylounge is to create a compact, ergonomic lounge chair that comfortably supports an adult within a limited space. The design uses minimal amounts of plywood so that it is light enough to move into and around the space, yet strong enough to support the body . The chair is constructed from only 4 pieces of wood. When it reaches the end of its life, it can be easily deconstructed and recycled.
