Furniture Design - Poppy chair

I designed this chair as an assignment for my Furniture and Fittings class during my college. I named it Poppy Chair because a poppy flower was my inspiration. The chair does not exist but I wish it would. Maybe one day someone will discover it...

  • 2. Egg chair (1950s-lounched in1960) – Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) Materials/Manufacturing: The shell is made of polyurethane foam with fibre glass reinforcement . Base - injection-moulded aluminium, hand-stitched upholstery - fabrics by Danish textile king Kvadrat or Happy (left) and Prince (right) 504 fabrics by Tord Boontje. It also comes in leather. It takes several days and 1,300 stitches to make one chair. Barcelona chair (1929) – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Materials/Manufacturing: The frame is formed from strips of steel, which are shaped, welded and ground by hand before being polished and chromed. It takes one person two days to sew the cushions using 126 individual pieces of leather, taken from a complete hide. The cutter determines the overall look of the cushions, as each piece of leather is a different shape and size and varies in colour. It is available to buy in 841 standard leather colour options. Panton Chair (1960s) – Verner Panton Materials/Manufacturing: The solid plastic chair (reinforced polypropylene) is made using a process known as injection moulding. The shell is UV and weatherproof, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and it contains additives to prevent the brilliant colours from fading. The Panton Chair comes in five different standard colours: black, blue, red, white and yellow. But every year Vitra releases a limited-edition colour.

  • 3. Hack Chair by Ronen Kadushin The Hack chair is one piece of laser cut 6mm aluminium and hand bent. Iga Chair by Damian Kozlik The Iga chair is made of polypropylene and is inspired by the shape of the origami swan. Porosity Bench by Stephen Hall Architects Constructed of solid bamboo planes with digitally cut interlocking edges, USA 2008. Riddled Cabinet by Stephen Hall Architects The Cabinet is a laser cut Canaletto walnut and aluminium with vegetal oil finish. The five cabinets are inscribed in an orthogonal frame defining the limits of the piece as furniture and densely perforated with five unique porous patterns. Shadow Chair by Duffy London The chair integrates shadow into its structure, at first glance it is a simple wooden chair that seems to defy gravity by standing upright while only having two front legs, but on closer inspection the shadow is part of the chair and made from steel, which is attached to a metal frame built inside the chair. Available in walnut and white birch. Villain Chair by Suck UK The Villain chair rests on a base of chrome, steel, and aluminium, and is covered in plush squares upholstered in leather. 900X900X1200mm Inspiration chairs Furniture & Fittings Poppy Chair by Anna Janicka Interior Design 2nd year

  • 5. Plan: chair design for a new flagship store which will open in the near future for a fashion designer, Amy Lynam. She described her collection Anthem as dark, urban, strong, conceptual and cosmopolitan and my aim was to design a chair with similar or the same qualities. Idea: transformation of a poppy flower into a chair to create a feeling of outdoors and to bring Amy Lynam’s accent colours, black and red into the urban appearance of the flagship store. These colours also emphasize the New York style (famous red brick, black fire staircases) that my client is looking for. Straightening the edges of the flower produced a shape that blends with the Anthem clothing style and with the interior of the store.

The final appearance is achieved by spraying the model with red paint and clear lacquer, and by adding accessories (decorative light fixture and pillow).
  • 7. Furniture & Fittings Poppy Chair by Anna Janicka Interior Design 2nd year Materials and Manufacturing Base of the Poppy Chair will be made of injection-moulded (1*) Polypropylene (PP) because of properties and aesthetics that I want to achieve in my design. Weight: Polypropylene is a light weight material and the chair should not be very heavy. Tensile strength: Its tensile strength is high. It shows strong resistance towards stress and cracking. It means the chair will easily carry ballast and will not break. Moisture Absorption: Polypropylene does not get affected by moisture as its moisture absorption is very low. It will not get stained very easily. Corrosion: Polypropylene also remains unaffected by chemicals. PP can be readily compounded or coloured in the melt phase and formulated for specific performances (extra stiffness, antistatic to improve dusting and resistance to UV for outdoor uses. It can be produced in variety of colours but also in a high gloss finish – one of the main reasons of my choice. Accessories. Pillow for the chair will be respectively shaped and made of black leather with gloss finish. Leather is also widely used in Amy Lynam’s collections. It fits perfectly to the New York style interior but most importantly it will perform slip resistance while in contact with high gloss finished plastic surface. Accent lanterns (poppy buds) will be made of black wrought iron and screwed to the chair under the seat. High gloss PP Iron lamps Black leather 1* Injection moulding – manufacturing process where material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mould cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the mould cavity.

  • 8. by Anna Janicka Dimensions: H1030xW1420xD1300mm Flower of the 21st century, Poppy lounge chair is made of recyclable injection moulded red Polypropylene with gloss finish and fixed foam filled seat cushion upholstered in high quality black leather. Two lanterns made of wrought iron emphasize interesting shape of the chair and gloss finish reflects their light. Chair is strong, durable, antistatic, moisture and stain resistant (for leather maintenance read manufacturer instructions). It can be used both indoor and outdoor with a change of a cushion material, electrical equipment is watertight and also easy to uninstall if needed. It comes in a wide range of colours so why not personalize you own chair?
