DESIGN BRIEF - PICNIC FURNITURE

V. Ryan © 2008

 

 

I am going to design and make a folding picnic chair. The chair will be lightweight so that even a child can carry it and easy to un fold and set up. It will be as safe as possible with all the mechanisms being simple to operate. I will use recycled materials where possible or materials from sustainable sources. For example, the wood will be purchased from a supplier sourcing timber from sustainable forests. Waste produced during the manufacturing process will be reduced to a minimum. The material will be weather proof and able to withstand both summer and winter climates. It will be possible to manufacture the furniture in either ‘one off’ or ‘batch production’. Costs will be keep to a minimum. the chair will be stable
